HATHORN DAVEY BECAME PART OF THE SWISS GROUP `SULZER BROS'. WHEN THESE PREMISES WERE DEMOLISHED IN THE SIXTIES, THE COMPANY MOVED TO THE SOUTHERN LEEDS RING ROAD.

I think they were actually demolished in the mid-70's. Just before demolition, this block became a film set for "Harry's Game" (ITV)and was disguised as an army checkpoint in Ulster.

I started work at Hathorn Davey in 1966, A new office block and machine shop was built adjacent in 1972 and I think moved to the Ring Road at Millshaw to a purpose built factory and offices in the late 70's. The old offices on Jack Lane were in fact used for the set of Harry's Game.

If these buildings were used as a set for 'Harry's Game'then they must have still been there in the 1980's.That t.v. film was made in 1982.

You are quite right Paul, The new office block was built in 1972 and the old buildings remained until 1982 before the company moved to Millshaw on the ring road. The newer office and workshop buildings are still there on the corner of Jack Lane/Dewsbury Rad
