Sikh Temple (former Potternewton Park Mansion) - Leeds

Originally known as Harehills Grove, this classical mansion was built in the early C19 for a local wool merchant. It was sold to the Leeds Corporation at the turn of the century and remained in educational use until 2006 when it was purchased for use as a Sikh Gurdwara. It suffered extensive water ingress due to shell defects. Repair works to the roofs and windows were carried out in 2015 with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship scheme. A second Project Development grant from Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship scheme was accepted in 2017.
