Did you or any of your family work at Tetley’s brewery in Hunslet?
As South Leeds Life has previously reported, the site is about to redeveloped into flats, houses offices and shops together with a new urban park. The developers, Vastint, are keen to respect the history of the site and have asked local people to come forward with their stories and photographs.
The brewery was founded in 1822 by Joshua Tetley and in its heyday in the 1960s employed 1,000 people. It closed in 2011 and was demolished the following year leaving the just art deco head office building – now The Tetley gallery – and an office block.
