Greenwood Row, Crimbles (Pudsey)
Colour imageNovember 2009. View of Greenwood Row in the old Crimbles area of Pudsey, dating from the early nineteenth century. Greenwood Row is an example of through, double-fronted clothiers' houses. The weavers and their families used the ground floor as sleeping and living accommodation and the upper floor of each cottage was equipped as a workshop housing the looms. Greenwood Row was built by joiner, Edward Greenwood who, as a result of the Enclosure Act, had acquired a small enclosure allotment on Crimbles Green. He built the houses to make a profit on the sale or rental.
