Osmondthorpe Old Hall, rear view
2nd June 1931. Rear view of Osmondthorpe Old Hall located on the east side of Osmondthorpe Lane. The doorway and part of the grounds can be seen. The original Osmondthorpe Old Hall was a large square building with a farm included on the estate. It was pulled down and rebuilt in 1814 and the property seen here may have originally been part of the farm. Osmondthorpe Old Hall had once been home to the Ibbetson and Skelton families. It was demolished in the 1930s and the land became the site of the Rookwood Estate. A confusion sometimes arises with Osmondthorpe Old Hall and Osmondthorpe Hall which were different buildings. Osmondthorpe Hall was an early 18th century mansion situated not far away but on the west side of Osmondthorpe Lane. Fifty acres of land from the estate were purchased by the council in 1886 from the then owner, John Robinson, to lay out East End Park and construct the broad, tree-lined Victoria Avenue which cuts through it from York Road. Other land surrounding the house was sold off as building plots in 1906. Sadly, Osmondthorpe Hall burned down in 1924.
