Burton House, Burton Avenue (Hunslet)
Black & White image12th August 1980 Burton House, formerly also called Burton Lodge, situated on Burton Avenue, adjacent to Cockburn High School. The school is just visible on the left. The house dates from 1791 and is a listed building, bought by Leeds Council in 1919. It was used as an annexe for the school in the 1980s. Bellway Homes secured an Urban Development Grant for £273,000 for conversion of the house into flats(now 1-10 Burton House) with plans for a further 28 to be built on adjoining land. In the Yorkshire Evening Post on 18th Feburary 1986 an appeal for relatives of the last occupants Robert and Suzanne Lawson was made. It was hoped that a representative of the family who had lived at Burton House in 1919 could be present when the first of the flats was completed and ready to be shown. The conversion was completed by October 1986.
