Pottery Vale, Leek Street flats (Hunslet Grange)
1973 View of Leek Street flats (Hunslet Grange) built in 1968 showing Pottery Vale facing west behind the Sun public house. The flats were six storeys in height with access from the 2nd and 5th floor walkways, where tenants either went downstairs or upstairs to their flats. The round columns are rubbish shutes. Little steel hatches were situated on the walkways for rubbish which then landed in bins in the bin house on the ground floor. Because of their grey stonework they were sometimes referred to them as 'Armley Jail' but they did have large window areas to let in light. At the Hunslet Road side of this big complex there was the Pioneer Public House and a few shops in the flats. Image and information courtesy of Steve Morrell.
