Looking across to a side view of the Tut & Shive, one of Yeadon's oldest public houses it was formerly called the Robin Hood.
It is mentioned in Philomen Slater's "History of the Ancient Parish of Guiseley" published in 1880 ; when the wedding of a Yeadon couple  had taken place at St Oswald's Parish Church in Guiseley (prior to St John's Church being built in 1844 ) the young groomsmen would race up Kirk Lane on horseback, the first to reach the Robin Hood would be awarded a beribboned  silver tankard of ale.
In 1822 the landlord was Thomas Townshend, 1838 Hannah Harrison, 1853 John Bateson, 1861 John Tewsler, 1867 Christopher Broskham.
      The large building behind is the Temperance Hall, ironically built in close proximity to the pub!
