First Leeds White Cloth Hall, 98-101 (consecutive), Kirkgate - Leeds

A rare example of an early C18 arcaded cloth hall built in 1711. Its construction helped establish Leeds as the mercantile heart of Yorkshire. Part of a generally dilapidated block along Kirkgate, which is being repaired with the support of a National Lottery Heritage Fund Townscape Heritage Initiative grant. The cloth hall was derelict and deteriorating, the west wing demolished in 2010, but repairs, part funded by Historic England, are now well-advanced.
