In 1853 this was the premises of J Clark, coach builder; by
1876 Clark and Sons were the West Riding Carriage Works. The
business continued until at least 1881 and the 1900 Directory
Shows that J Stansfield Ltd, iron and steel merchants then
used the buildings, (they were probably responsible for the
single-storey office/reception, the numbers over the archways


and remnants of painted signwork on the north side of the
courtyard).
(Directories of Leeds for 1853, 1876, 1881 & 1900).
