Abbey Gatehouse, north of Kirkstall Abbey, lithograph (Kirkstall) (2 comments)
Black & White imageAugust 1820 Image shows a lithograph from 1820 depicting the gatehouse to the north of Kirkstall Abbey. This was before the new turnpike road was built in 1827. The gatehouse was first converted to a residence by John Ripley, the last abbot, who lived there until his death in 1568. For the next three hundred years it existed as a farmhouse and this is how we see it in this lithograph. Later, it became a gentlemans residence and was occupied by the Butler family. Eventually, Colonel Thomas Walter Harding of the Tower Works, Holbeck owned the gatehouse until he sold it to Leeds City Council in 1925. It is now part of Abbey House Museum and has only recently undergone a £2.3 million restoration, including additions to the Victorian Streets and shops.
