Dewsbury Road, Stank Hall Barn (Beeston) (4 comments)
Colour image1983. View of the old barn at Stank Hall Farm on Dewsbury Road. Dating from the 15th century, possibly as far back as 1448, it is now a scheduled Ancient Monument. At the time of the photo the barn was in a deteriorating state, having been abandoned as a farm in the 1960s. It was restored by Leeds City Council in the late 1980s but now (2009) it is said to be deteriorating again.

Colour image1983. View of New Hall, part of Stank Hall Farm on Dewsbury Road. This was an additional wing to the south end of Stank Hall, probably built in the early 17th century by Christopher Hodgson after he purchased the property in 1609. By the 1950s New Hall was a separate property from Stank Hall Farm and was divided into three houses.

Stank Hall Farm (Beeston)
Black & White image20th October 1948. Picture shows an interior view of the barn in Stank Hall Farm on Dewsbury Road, south of the junction with Millshaw Road. This dates from the 1400s and was in use until the 1960s. After this the condition of the barn deteriorated; in the late 1980s it was restored by Leeds City Council. This won the Leeds award for architecture in 1991. The structure is supported by huge wooden beams and supports. A large bale of hay is piled up against the back wall. To the left is a parked car with a sheet of some sort draped over the engine. Barrels and boxes are visible towards the right hand side.
