  1. It would be wonderful if this could be bought collaboratively and maintained for the local community.

  2. I couldn’t agree more Carrie. What a shame Leeds City Council are not in a financial position to help. It would be great to see both this site and the Stank Hall Barn site revived for local community use. The Friends of Stank Hall Barn are currently working with the council regarding the Barn and hope to establish a community growing project, an oral history project and a community archaeology project in the near future, To find out more about the group, see their facebook page
