Osmondthorpe Old Hall, Osmondthorpe Lane (Osmondthorpe) (9 comments)
2nd June 1931. View of Osmondthorpe Old Hall on the east side of Osmondthorpe Lane showing the front of the property. Houses just below the Hall stand on what was formerly the grounds and is now part of the Rookwood housing estate. It is not clear whether this property was part of the farm which belonged to Osmondthorpe Old Hall as the hall has been described as a large, square building. The building in the image was certainly occupied by farmers in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Osmondthorpe Old Hall was demolished and then rebuilt in 1814. This property may date from that period but was then demolished in the 1930s. Osmondthorpe Old Hall is not to be confused with the early 18th Century 'Osmondthorpe Hall' which stood on the west side of Osmondthorpe Lane and was destroyed by a fire in 1924. The grounds of this mansion were sold to the council in 1886 for the creation of East End Park. This involved constructing a new road from York Road through the park - a broad tree-lined avenue called Victoria Avenue.
