Lower Town Street, no.112
Description:
Undated. View of an antiques shop at no.112 Lower Town Street, by the junction with Killingbeck Yard. Known as the Old House, this Grade II listed building has survived the building of a council estate all around it. Dating from about 1600 it is a rare example of a pre-industrial building which is still in existence today (2010). Flats in the background are in Snowden Vale and Snowden Lawn.

How right you are Jane! Leeds city council should hang their heads in shame for what they did to poor Old Bramley.They tore the heart out of the place. It could have rivalled Calverley with its old stone cottages.Shame!

If this building had been orientated anti-clockwise through 90 degrees, its roof would have nearly reached the pavement. In earlier times it would then have been known as a 'TEA-FALL ROOF'. I wonder how many people know of, or remember that expression being used in everyday conversation? Further, does anyone know the origin or an explanation of it? (Thinks:-Why isn't there a degree symbol on the Qwerty Keyboard?)
