Osmondthorpe Old Hall, Osmondthorpe Lane
c1922. View of old stone property known as Osmondthorpe Old Hall, located off York Road on the east side of Osmondthorpe Lane, almost opposite the junction with Ings Road. The original Old Hall was a large, square building with a farm occupying part of the estate but it was pulled down and rebuilt in 1814. The building seen here, which eventually became two cottages, may have been part of the farm belonging to Osmondthorpe Old Hall. Osmondthorpe Old Hall was once owned by the Skelton family and the Ibbetson's. It was demolished in the 1930s. Osmondthorpe Old Hall is not to be confused with Osmondthorpe Hall which stood not far away off the west side of Osmondthorpe Lane and dated from the 1720s. Much of the grounds (about 50 acres) were sold to the Council in 1886 by the last owner, John Robinson, to lay out East End Park. The tree-lined Victoria Avenue was constructed through the park from York Road. Later, in 1906, some of the land surrounding Osmondthorpe Hall was sold for housing. Osmondthorpe Hall burned down in 1924.
