Maltkilns ( Armley Road) (Armley) (3 comments)
Black & White imageUndated. This area of Armley was known locally as the 'Maltkilns' located between Armley Road and Mistress Lane. It was the site of the Old Maltings which belonged to Tetley's, and was demolished in 1920. On the opposite side of Armley Road there is the Lord Nelson, a public house. The tower of the 'Clock School' is visible right of centre, Armley Board School. On the far right, at number 161 Armley Road, is Wellgarth House. In the 1920s this was the home of Dr. Archibald Haddow, a very well known General Practioner in the area. Along with his colleague Dr. Ian M. D. Grieve he noted the high incidence of serious pulmonary disease amongst his patients. This they rightly attributed to the asbestos factory in the area, J. W. Roberts of Midland Works, who manufactured insulation mattresses for steam engines. As far back as 1929 Dr. Haddow quoted a case at a meeting of the British Medical Association "in which the curious bodies were found in a man who was not employed in the industry, but who lived next door to an asbestos factory . . . " In more recent decades the tragic effect of asbestos dust on the health of the people of this part of Armley has been well documented and the subject of several court cases and numerous claims for compensation. The fight for justice for the victims of Asbestosis is still ongoing.
