Pottery Vale, Leek Street flats (Hunslet Grange)
1983 View of Leek Street flats, at they were known locally, officially named Hunslet Grange. They were built to great acclaim by Shepherd construcion in 1968 but developed problems such as condensation and damp. Draughts came through gaps in the pre- formed wall sections and the off-peak fan-storage heating was ineffectual in extreme cold weather. The problems led to higher than average fuel costs for tenants. Eventually, after only fifteen years the huge complex of 2,500 flats and maisonettes had to be demolished. This image was taken during demolition and shows Pottery Vale behind the Sun public house with rubble from Ledsham Dene in the foreground. Image and information courtesy of Steve Morrell.
