Holbeck Moor Road, high rise flats (Holbeck)
Black & White image25th January 2004. View of several blocks of high rise flats looking from Holbeck Moor across Holbeck Moor Road. In all there were five blocks of high rise flats following the line of Holbeck Moor Road. Looking from the Domestic Street end, and moving from left to right, the first three blocks were all called Holbeck Towers with flat numbers in each block as follows: numbers 1 to 61, 62 to 121 and 122 to 181. The fourth block was Gaitskell Grange with flat numbers 1 to 61 and finally the fifth was Gaitskell Court , also with flat numbers 1 to 61. The tower blocks containing 300 flats between them have recently (2010) been demolished as part of a wider regeneration plan for the Beeston Hill and Holbeck areas of the city, involving PFI (Private Finance Initiative) funding. New sustainable and affordable housing is to be provided as part of the redevelopment scheme.
