Osmondthorpe Old Hall, Osmondthorpe Lane
2nd June 1931. View of Osmondthorpe Old Hall located on the east side of Osmondthorpe Lane taken not long before it was demolished in the 1930s. Many of the windows are boarded up. The Osmondthorpe Old Hall Estate also included a farm and this property may have been part of it. It were later converted to two cottages. The original Old Hall was a large, square building but it was demolished and entirely rebuilt in 1814. Among its owners were the Ibbetson and Skelton families. Another important large house was Osmondthorpe Hall which dated from the early eighteenth century and was situated on the west side of Osmondthorpe Lane before it was destroyed by fire in 1924. In 1886 the then owner, John Robinson, sold 50 acres of the grounds to the Council so that a park could be provided for the residents of east Leeds. This involved the construction of the broad, tree-lined Victoria Avenue through the park from York Road. More of the grounds were sold off in 1906 as building plots.
