Comment
This was in the area known as "Calcutta", the fire station is now in this area.
Rawdon Co-op first had a butchery department around 1885.
An Act of 1958 on slaughterhouses made it clear that the slaughterhouse was not up to the required standard, the Co-op Society decided it was not worthwhile to make improvements.
It was last used in January 1962.

Calcutta Farm was in Green Lane, Yeadon, you can see the old fire station back right, and the chimneys of Benton Terrace back left, these houses have now gone to make space for the new fire station.
