All Souls' Church from the first floor front bedroom window of number 1 Well Close Mount (Woodhouse) (9 comments)
Black & White image1955. View of All Souls' Church taken from the larger front bedroom window of number 1 Well Close Mount. The road in the foreground is Blenheim Mount and the junction with Well Close Mount is just seen, left. The property on the left is number 2 Well Close Mount. The church stands at the junction of Blenheim Grove, which runs alongside the wall, and Blackman Lane, seen between the church and number 22 Blenheim Mount, towards the right. All Souls' Church was erected between 1876 and 1880 at a cost of around £20,000 to designs in the Early English style. It was built as a memorial to Dean Hook, who was Vicar of Leeds between 1837 and 1859. The church is still in existence but the properties in Well Close Mount are demolished and the site is now public open space.
