St. Hilda
February 2008. Image shows a gable end of back-to-back housing scheduled for demolition and unoccupied. The houses facing left are in St. Hilda's Avenue and the end one is number 25. There is a glimpse of St. Hilda's Grove to the right edge. The house to the right in the gable end is number 26 St. Hilda's Grove. Old advertising, although much faded, is still visible on the gable end. It reads 'Hemingway's Noted Ales. Try our "Big Bens". J.W. Hemingway, Brewer, is listed in the Directory of Leeds at number 4, All Saints Road, off York Road. Part of St. Hilda's Church in Cross Green Lane can be seen in the background, left. The photograph is taken from Glencoe View.

My family lived at no/25 for many years, and I remember all the neighbours very well.My mother was born at no/25 in 1914 and did'nt leave until 1965,I was also born there in 1941 and married at St Hilda's Church in 1961. My grandfather was rhe original tennent, his name was Elijah Armstrong, my grandmothers maiden name was Alice Ratcliffe. I was told by my mother that at one time grandad went into business and bought a Char-a-banc, he used to take people on various outings to Blackpool etc, this was confirmed by an eldery relative after mum had died, who said that her uncle Elijah used to have a board outside no/25 advertising these outings,(I dont know what period it was) Mum had a photo of grandad with his Chr-a-banc but sadly it seems to have disappeared, I would welcome any info that anyone may have. St Hilda's Avenue holds many happy memories for me and I feel very sad that the house is to be demolished.
