Oatlands, one time home of architect, Robert D.Chantrell, Camp Road (Little London) (1 comment)
Black & White imageUndated. View of 'Oatlands' the one-time home of the architect Robert Dennis Chantrell (1793-1872), probably most well known in Leeds for his designs for the re-building of Leeds Parish Church, although he was responsible for other notable Leeds architecture of the day, for instance, Leeds Public Baths, Leeds Philosophical and Literary Society Hall, shops in Bond Street and the South Market. He did not design this house however, or even make extensions to it, it is thought. It was believed to have dated from the 18th century and would not have been considered noteworthy architecturally at the time. Although close to the centre of Leeds, locations further to the north, such as Headingley, tended to be more fashionable at this time. The house was quite large due to the additions that had been built onto it but it was more like a substantial cottage than a grand house. Robert Chantrell moved into Oatlands with his family in the July of 1833 and lived there until he relocated to Lincoln's Inn Fields in London in the mid 1840s. From Mr Brown's album of photographs of old Leeds. Photograph by Wormald of Leeds.
