Lady Beck (City Centre) (1 comment)
Black & White image28th August 1913. View of Lady beck, Lady Beck Bridge, junction of Lady Lane and St. Peters Street. The Lady Beck is a continuation of Sheepscar Beck, which flows from origins on Otley Chevin, through Bramhop, Adel, Meanwood. It was the site of much early industry in Leeds. it flowed from Lady Lane to Timble Bridge, east of the Parish Church of St. Peter to confluence with River Aire. When this photo was taken, the beck was to be completely covered in this area. The name 'Lady' was derived from a Medieval Chantry Chapel, site of first Catholic Church built in Leeds (1794). It was situated at the junction of Lady Lane and Templar Lane. On the left is Metcalf yard, with premises of G.W. Turner, wheelwright. Others shared yard premises . An area of cleared land has several handcarts in view. Towards the centre, buildings of Quarry Hill area are to be seen.
