Beech Grove House, Leeds University (Woodhouse)
Black & White imageUndated. View of Beech Grove House and grounds. Built in 1799 for Abram Rhodes, a cloth merchant, it was on the opposite side of the private carriageway from Beech Grove built by Benjamin Murgitroyd. This carriageway later became College and then University Road. In 1840 Rhodes' trustees sold Beech Grove House to iron founder Joseph Ogdin March, who had been apprentice to Matthew Murray and married his daughter Mary. He later went into partnership with Charles Maclea, founding the business of Maclea and March, and was also Mayor of Leeds in 1862-63. The property remained in the family until 1925 when March's daughter, who had inherited the house, died there. The house was acquired by the University and became Education House. The University Union building was later built in the grounds. Photograph by Wormald of Leeds.
