Red Hall, King Charles Croft, (City Centre) (7 comments)
Black & White imageUndated. Image shows Red Hall from the south-west, at the junction with King Charles Street, left, and King Charles Croft, right. A glimpse of Guildford Street, Upperhead Row, (now known as The Headrow) is visible at the left edge. Red Hall is believed to be the first red brick building in Leeds. It was built in 1628 for wool merchant, Alderman Thomas Metcalfe (appointed 1630). The grounds and orchard spread as far as Albion Place. The garden became home to the Tivoli and Theatre Royal in the 1800s. During the English Civil War, on the 9th February 1646 King Charles I was held prisoner and lodged here overnight. He was being conveyed from Newark to Newcastle by his captors, the Scots. It is reputed that John Harrison brought the King a tankard of gold coins to bribe his captors and buy his freedom. The room was known ever after as the 'King's Chamber' and the event is depicted in stained glass in St. John's Church. The building continued as a residence for Richard Thornton and Sir Henry Ibbetson in the 18th Century and Samuel Blakelock in the 19th Century. Later in the nineteenth century Red Hall housed offices including a firm of solicitors, Newstead & Wilson (James Shaw Newstead and Edmund Wilson) Local shop proprietor, Snowden Schofield, keen to expand his drapery business to a department store, bought Red Hall in 1912. He was already amassing retail property in the Victoria Arcade (1903 & 1908) where he began his Leeds business in 1901. The King's Chamber became part of Schofield's 'Old English Cafe'. Red Hall was demolished in 1961 for further development of Schofields department store and eventually became the site of the 'Headrow Shopping Centre' (1990). At time of writing (2013) it is known as 'The Core'. A two wheeled cart or bogie can be seen in the corner of the building, left, and a sign which reads 'Commit no nuisance'.
