Take a look at some of these historical buildings in Garforth, without the Leodis photographic archive of Leeds we wouldn't know about our lost buildings. 


Barrowby Lane Cottages

These cottages used to be on Barrowby Lane, they were unique to the area as the roof for the lower part of the cottage was made using a cruck frame. This frame was made by using two curved timbers that met in the middle, this type of construction was rare, the bent timbers were in high demand as they were used for the building of ships. Where the bent timbers were available they were used in the building of these cottages. This image is not dated but this method of the building started any time from 1586 and would often require alterations as the building aged. As you can see during the demolition of these cottages the building method was exposed and it was documented.

The inhabitants of these cottages were Tillotson of Tillotson farm, Billy Walters and Scriben Birch.
These houses were demolished in the 1930s and now most of Barrowby Lane is farmland. This image was taken in 2002 and at the time the footpath leading to the right would have taken you to these cottages.

Barrowby Hall

This country house was built in 1915 and was named Barrowby Hall as it was built on Barrowby Lane. It was once the residence of the Ingram Family, originally from Temple Newsam. From 1718 to 1720 it was remodelled by William Etty. We are unsure if this house is still standing but there is no record on the archives of it being demolished, according to British Listed Buildings it is still standing but we couldn't get close enough on maps to find it. As it is registered as a grade II listed building it is likely
