Garden Gate, Waterloo Road (Hunslet) (16 comments)
Black & White imageUndated, Image shows the elaborate shop front style facade of the Grade II listed Garden Gate public house in Waterloo Road, located between Whitfield Street and Walton Street. The building, completed in 1902, was constructed in brick and terracotta with decorative soft bronze glazed tiles. Records show that the first mention of a public house on the site of the present day Garden Gate was in 1833. (The Victorian Society - West Yorkshire Group - 1985 publication) The pub was named the Garden Gate in 1849, thought to be due to its location near the market gardens. The 1902 building replaced it and internally it incorporates many features of the Art Nouveau period , including motifs, tiles and the etched glasswork in the main bar. The Garden Gate is believed to have been designed by Thomas Winn and much of the original furniture was supplied by John Claughton, cabinet maker & undertaker of 260 Dewsbury Road, and who also had a workshop in Leak Yard, Jack Lane. The Garden Gate had always been privately owned until it was acquired by Ind Coope in 1922. It became a Tetley's pub in the 1960s and fortunately was saved from demolition in the 1970s when the surrounding area was cleared. It was saved by a public campaign and Hunslet underwent redevelopment around it. In 1982, after a restoration project the Garden Gate was designated a 'Heritage Inn' and is one of approximately 20 Tetley pubs out of over 1,000 to be acknowledged in this way. This 1995 image shows two draymen delivering Tetley's barrels to the pub using traditional Tetley shire horses.
