Brewery Yard


Brewery Yard
Description:
Undated, Image shows a house with outbuilding located in Brewery Yard, off Burton Row. Clothes hang on a line outside the front door. The location of Brewery Yard was directly behind numbers 19 (The Blooming Rose Inn), 20 and 21 Burton Row. The site is now occupied by part of Maltings Court. Behind Brewery yard was Moorside Maltings. According to Directories of Leeds there were maltsters working in Brewery Yard from as far back as 1882 and possibly earlier, including a long established firm, from at least 1906 to 1947, called Richard Dobson & Sons Ltd.

Can anyone say where Brewery Yard was? It doesn't seem to exist now, even in name. Could it have been near Kidacre Street, Hunslet, where John Spencer had his Waterloo Brewery (established 1824)until 1929?

I used to walk past the Blooming Rose to get to school at Hunslet Moor Juniors from Addington Place. It was located south of Moor Road and East of Dewsbury Road in what I seem to remember was an open area. There was also an old air-raid shelter covered in grass close by which we used to play in.

Regarding Mike's query. No this is not near Kidacre Street. That ran from somewhere north of Great Wilson Street down to Ivory Street. The brewery yard in this picture was close to a southern edge of Hunslet Moor. Originally there were three Malthouses here; all very close together. If you walked along Burton Avenue from Dewsbury Road, you would have passed on your left, the ends of Dobson Place - Grove - Avenue - Terrace - View. At the end of these streets there was an open area, with Back Burton Row bounding it at the opposite end. Houses on the left running along Burton Street enclosed it on the left. The Malthouse which started at the end of Dobson View was followed by other building which ran into Burton Row on the edge of Hunslet Moor. Further along Burton Avenue, after Dobson View, came Burton House. Behind this was another open space with a further two Malthouses. One of them directly behind Burton House and set on a line at right angles to Burton Avenue. The third Malthouse, also behind Burton House, ran along the side of Primrose Place, which itself backed onto Burton Row and Hunslet Moor. All The Dobsons are still there, as are Burton Avenue and Burton Street, along with what is left of Burton Row. There is still a vestige of the memory of the old Malthouses in the names of the nearby, Moorside Maltings and Maltings Road. (June 2010)

To add further to this, I have a relatives death certificate from 1857 in which it says they lived at Brewery Moor Side, which I believe is this.

I too have people on my family tree who lived in Brewery Moorside. My ancestors, Robert Coates and his wife, Grace, lived there after their marriage in 1814. Robert died in 1846, but Grace remarried a Joseph Armitage and continued to live in the same area. Our ancestors must have been neighbours,tg.

I have ancestors who lived in Brewery Moorside in 1841 and stayed very local to here their whole lives. They were in Brewery Place in 1851 and Brewery Yard in 1871. Both of my parents families have been in and around Hunslet and Holbeck for about 300 years. In fact I was born at my Nan's house in Hunslet in the 1950's and spent much of my school holidays in Hunslet.
