Barleycorn Inn, Upper Moor area of Town Street. (Armley) (8 comments)
Black & White imageUndated. Image shows the Barleycorn Inn situated in Town Street. The sign above the entrance says in large lettering 'Turner's Barleycorn Inn' and the Landlord and his wife, Benjamin (born in Stanningley in 1806) and Hannah (born in Drighlington in 1806) Turner, can be seen standing in front. It is believed the photograph dates from after 1857. In 1857 Benjamin Turner was still running the Union Cross according to a directory of that year, and so was not Landlord of the Barleycorn until later. He died in 1859 but his wife, Hannah, continued to run the Barleycorn Inn after his death until she died at the age of 66 on 23rd February, 1873. She is listed in the 1861 'Post Office Directory of the West Riding of Yorkshire' as the landlady of the Barleycorn Inn. Benjamin and Hannah Turner were both buried in the churchyard of Armley Parish Church of St. Bartholomew. The image shows how the original building looked before it was considerably altered and extended, bringing it much closer to the road. Two images on the Leodis website dating from 1960 and 1981 show the twin roof turret additions. The roof line of the adjoining property remains the same today. a sign to the right has the name of W.H. Stephenson, Importer and Bonder of foreign wines and spirits. It advertises Bass's Ale, Guinness's Stout and Sparkling Home Brewed ales. A sign to the left of the left hand window on the upper storey offers 'stabling'. Mrs Turner wears a print, long-skirted dress with puffed sleeves and a white, starched apron. Mr. Turner wears a dark suit with waistcoat and watchchain and sports a flat cap.
