Bischoff House, number 2 Hartley Hill
16th February 1949. Image shows the rear of number 2 Hartley Hill known as Bischoff House, formerly Sheepscar Hall. The house, believed to have been designed by William Etty, is shown on the Cossins' map of Leeds dated 1725 when it was the property of Nathaniel Denison. The Bischoff family were woollen and worsted cloth merchants. John James Bischoff (1775-1845) who lived in the re-named Bischoff House was the son of Bernard Bischoff, originally from Switzerland. In 1851 the Slade and Roebuck Directory of Leeds shows it to be the residence of George Bischoff at that time. The house was demolished c1968 but in the latter years was the premises of Arthur English Ltd., Electrical Contractors. There is a parked car in the cobbled yard and an exterior spiral fire escape is visible.
