Armley Congregational Church, Hall Lane. (Armley) (14 comments)
Black & White imageView of Armley Congregational Church in Hall Lane. On an O.S. map for 1986 it was recorded as the Armley United Reformed Church. A national split within the Methodist community meant the formation of splinter groups. The Methodist New Connexion in Armley was one of these and they were responsible for building two new chapels, this one in Hall Lane and the Bethseda Chapel in Theaker Lane. The foundation stone was laid on Saturday 30th January 1897 and the church opened its doors on 12th March 1898. The Rev.W.L.Tonge was in residence here at the time the church opened. The church is constructed in brick with stone dressings and housed an organ gifted by Joseph Hepworth, Esq. J.P. of Headingley House. It originally had a spire erected on the square structure to the right. An early picture of the church and more information can be found in 'Armley Through the Camera' by T.Kirby. The church has been converted into residential flats in recent years.

Asda Queens Supermarket, formerly Ebenezer Primitive Methodist Chapel, Fountain Street (Morley) (1 comment)
Colour imageOctober 1968. View of the former Ebenezer Primitive Methodist Chapel in Fountain Street shortly after it had been renovated and turned into a shop and offices for the Asda Queens supermarket. In comparison to an earlier image on the Leodis website, it is possible to see that the steps and wall which separated the chapel from the causeway have been considerably altered and the trees removed. The carving has been effaced from the pediment and the memorial stones at the base of the four pillars in front of the chapel. When Asda's new supermarket and offices on the Howley Park Estate were ready, about 1970, the firm then moved up there. This building was sold to Phillip's auctioneers for nearly twenty years, and then it was bought by Handyman's Stores. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
