I spent the morning walking around Beeston asking shops and community buildings to put up a poster advertising the South Leeds Life meeting about Stank Hall Barn.
I got a fantastic response, with most people agreeing to display the poster.
“That’s the oldest building in Beeston, mate” said a customer in the Tommy Wass pub.
“There was a famous murder there 400 years ago, I was reading about it” the hairdresser at Snipper Clark’s on Beeston Road said.
“There was a plan to turn it into a restaurant, what happened to that?” was another comment.
Everyone wants to see a future for the building and many said they would be coming to the meeting to learn more. We hope you can come along to the meeting where we hear from:
- Beeston History Society
- Leeds City Council
- Leeds Civic Trust
The meeting is on Thursday 28th February at 7:00pm at Beeston Village Community Centre on St Anthony’s Drive.
If you are able to display the poster on a noticeboard or in a window, please download it here: Public Meeting poster
We’ll be checking about that murder and update you at the meeting!
