Beeston Methodist Church, Town Street, North Side (Beeston) (4 comments)
Colour image2005. Image shows the brick built Beeston Methodist Church located in Town Street at the corner with Wesley Street. This church replaced an earlier Wesleyan chapel in 1866, when the Methodist congregation was expanding and a larger building was needed. The plot of land was purchased by leading Methodists at a cost of £215. There were an orchard, garden, foldstead and four cottages on the site and the Church had sufficient land for 95 square metres of garden to the front. Steps led down from the entrance to a lawn bordered by trees. Leeds Corporation bought the land when trams were introduced to Beeston Town Street. The church recieved £400 in compensation for the loss of the land. The church is constructed in the Italian Style to accommodate 540 persons. It cost £2,300 to build.

Boroughgate, junction with Wesley Street (Otley)
Black & White imagec Nov-Dec 1976. Views shows Boroughgate at the junction with Wesley Street, seen on the left. On the corner is a Grade II listed building which comprises no. 1 Wesley Street and nos. 36-38 Boroughgate. Formerly a block of dwelling houses which dates from the 18th century, it has more recently been used as offices, at the time by Atkinson, Dacre & Slack, solicitors. The building is relatively plain in architectural terms but is listed as an unaltered example of its date. Further along on Wesley Street are the premises of Edward A. Winpenny, photographer (some of whose photos appear on this site), while on the right is Jacksons of Otley, car showroom and garage, at nos. 40-42 Boroughgate. This occupies an old 1826 Wesleyan chapel, as well as the later extension visible beside the road. The extension has since been demolished and the old chapel behind, a listed building, has now become part of Chevin Court retirement flats.
