Beck Covering, Lady Beck, York Street


Beck Covering, Lady Beck, York Street
Description:
28th April 1937. Showing the covering-in of Lady Beck and the construction method used, note the use of the wooden arch template. At the centre is a concrete mixer and slide. To the right of the site is the Lloyds Arms public house and, to the left, The United Yeast Co. Ltd. buildings (yeast merchants, Union House). At this point Lady Beck flows under York Street and then crosses beneath the London & North Eastern railway line, following the line of Duke Street before emerging at the other side of Marsh Lane as Timble Beck.

Leeds Corporation Bus Station is situated right on top of this site. It must have been erected after this job was finished. Probably even part of the whole project. 4-Jan-08.

My grandfather Joseph Bean lived in a property alongside the beck in 1881, somewhere left of the cement mixer.This area was pretty grim as the beck was totally poluted.
