St. Chad's Gardens, 114 to 120 Otley Road

St. Chad
Undated. View of St. Chad's Gardens in Otley Road. The houses are built in brick and terracotta and date from 1885. Thomas Simpson, (1829-1898) solicitor of Simpson Curtis of Leeds, had purchased the land from the Cardigan Estate in 1878. The four imposing houses with dutch style gables stand at the corner with Hollin Road (off camera, right) and number from the left, 120 to 114 Otley Road. The elaborate terracotta decoration, faience, is thought to have been manufactured at Burmantofts and designed to showcase the work of the pottery business. This was probably at the instigation of James Holroyd, who made his home in Headingley, but between 1879 and 1884 had done much to promote the Burmantofts firm of Wilcock & Co. These properties are Grade II listed. They do not appear as St. Chad's Gardens on old or recent maps so it would be of interest to find out when they were first referred to by this address. The houses have long gardens to the front and open on to Hollin Mount at the back.
