Fawcett Lane, north side, lodge to Cliff House (Wortley) (5 comments)
Colour image2005. View from Fawcett Lane shows the lodge and gateway accessing the drive to Cliff House, former residence of Joseph Cliff, manufacturer of bricks. Joseph Cliff & Sons amalgamated with the Burmantofts Pottery Company to form Leeds Fireclay Company. The gritstone lodge is built on two storeys with canted by and slate roof. The outer piers on Fawcett Lane are decorated with vermiculated rustication ( a decorative, worm like motif on the stone surface ). From these, a curved wall at either side joins the inner piers. The gates are in cast iron with finials in a floral design. Cliff House, also known as Western Flatts, was gifted to Leeds City Council by Joseph Cliff's son, Stephen, in 1929. The house and lodge are both Grade II listed. At present, there is an application for planning permission to build a two storey extension to form a four bedroomed house and replace a detached garage.
