Garforth Colliery School, looking in the direction of Aberford Road
Undated. Early view of Garforth Colliery School, seen from the rear and looking in the direction of Aberford Road, East Garforth. The school was built in 1843 by the Gascoigne family specifically for the children of mineworkers. The Gascoignes had a long-established presence in the area, both as landowners and owners of the Garforth Collieries. The headmaster's house adjoins the right-hand side of the building but this was demolished in the 1950s. The property remained a school until 1987 when it closed and underwent conversion to the Aagrah Indian Restaurant. Photograph provided by Mrs. G. Lowe.
