This burnt-out building was in Church Street, it had been used for various purposes including a boot factory and a skating rink.
To the right is the Church Institute which was built on the site of Yeadon's first Wesleyan Chapel and was later used as St Andrew's Church Sunday School.
A room in the basement was used for dancing lessons, when the Institute was converted into apartments in 1984 a time capsule was found.
The wall on the right edge was the boundary for the yard belonging to Isaac Croft & Sons, Carriers.

Besides a boot factory and skating rink it was used as a billiard hall where I used to go with my father
In the 50's my wife and I took dancing lessons in the basement and in the 60's we played badminton upstairs

I remember being told, when I was at South View school in the 50s that John Wesley stayed at the end house ,of the row which ran between the steep and the church institute. This house had a very worn step and we were told that it was on this step that Wesley preached, in the absence of a chapel. I think it may have been when the old chapel was being built and Wesley came to see the new chapel going up.The houses outlasted the Wesleyan chapel but were demolished when the sheltered housing was built.Those too are now gone and we have a new apartment block.
