Osmondthorpe Old Hall, Osmondthorpe Lane (Osmondthorpe) (13 comments)
Black & White image2nd June 1931. View of Osmondthorpe Old Hall on the east side of Osmondthorpe Lane showing the front of the property. Houses just below the Hall stand on what was formerly the grounds and is now part of the Rookwood housing estate. It is not clear whether this property was part of the farm which belonged to Osmondthorpe Old Hall as the hall has been described as a large, square building. The building in the image was certainly occupied by farmers in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Osmondthorpe Old Hall was demolished and then rebuilt in 1814. This property may date from that period but was then demolished in the 1930s. Osmondthorpe Old Hall is not to be confused with the early 18th Century 'Osmondthorpe Hall' which stood on the west side of Osmondthorpe Lane and was destroyed by a fire in 1924. The grounds of this mansion were sold to the council in 1886 for the creation of East End Park. This involved constructing a new road from York Road through the park - a broad tree-lined avenue called Victoria Avenue.

Osmondthorpe Old Hall, Osmondthorpe Lane (Osmondthorpe)
Black & White image2nd June 1931. View of Osmondthorpe Old Hall located on the east side of Osmondthorpe Lane taken not long before it was demolished in the 1930s. Many of the windows are boarded up. The Osmondthorpe Old Hall Estate also included a farm and this property may have been part of it. It were later converted to two cottages. The original Old Hall was a large, square building but it was demolished and entirely rebuilt in 1814. Among its owners were the Ibbetson and Skelton families. Another important large house was Osmondthorpe Hall which dated from the early eighteenth century and was situated on the west side of Osmondthorpe Lane before it was destroyed by fire in 1924. In 1886 the then owner, John Robinson, sold 50 acres of the grounds to the Council so that a park could be provided for the residents of east Leeds. This involved the construction of the broad, tree-lined Victoria Avenue through the park from York Road. More of the grounds were sold off in 1906 as building plots.

Osmondthorpe Old Hall, rear view (Osmondthorpe)
Black & White image2nd June 1931. Rear view of Osmondthorpe Old Hall located on the east side of Osmondthorpe Lane. The doorway and part of the grounds can be seen. The original Osmondthorpe Old Hall was a large square building with a farm included on the estate. It was pulled down and rebuilt in 1814 and the property seen here may have originally been part of the farm. Osmondthorpe Old Hall had once been home to the Ibbetson and Skelton families. It was demolished in the 1930s and the land became the site of the Rookwood Estate. A confusion sometimes arises with Osmondthorpe Old Hall and Osmondthorpe Hall which were different buildings. Osmondthorpe Hall was an early 18th century mansion situated not far away but on the west side of Osmondthorpe Lane. Fifty acres of land from the estate were purchased by the council in 1886 from the then owner, John Robinson, to lay out East End Park and construct the broad, tree-lined Victoria Avenue which cuts through it from York Road. Other land surrounding the house was sold off as building plots in 1906. Sadly, Osmondthorpe Hall burned down in 1924.
