Guiseley Lost Buidlings

This was once actually two adjoining houses owned by Joseph and Caleb Peate brothers to mill owner Jonathan Peate. It was later owned by another mill owner John Rhodes.
Unfortunately, Peates Mill and the house was demolished to make way for west side retail park.
The first tram in Yeadon
on the 25th of May 1909 the tram lines were extended to reach Yeadon and a massive crowd gathered for the opening of the first tram. This was a very exciting time for the community as for members of the community it gave them more freedom to travel. Initially the line only went as far as Green Lane and later that year it was extended further to White Cross and Guiseley.
This is a picture of the Guiseley rectory that was rebuilt by Robert Moore in 1601. The first rectory was said to have been built in the 13th century and was replaced with this building. The tablet above the door is inscribed and reads Anno Domini 1601. Inside there was an original medieval aisled hall with timber posts, the posts define the layout of the downstairs rooms. This is a more recent picture as it was once up for sale for £1.1m.
