Your History Project

Calling all from Hunslet, Stourton and surrounding areas!

Were you born in the area? Did you work in the area or at Thwaite Mill? Do you have any stories from your ancestors of the area?

If so, we would love to hear from you. We are doing a history of Hunslet, the canal, and Thwaite Mill but want this to be about the personal stories from real people. If you have some pictures to share, that would be wonderful too.

If you want to be involved, please contact either Wendy Breakwell – or (0113) 336 7393 (leave a message & I will return your call) or Chris Sharp –
