SE33NW SHADWELL LANE, Shadwell 714-1/7/1096 (South side) Leeds Industrial School


Industrial school, now Education Department premises. Dated 1879, altered C20. Probably by RL Adams, Leeds School Board architect. Coursed gritstone, slate roof. 2 storeys with attics, 5 bays with 3, 6, 2, 6, 3 windows. The central and outer bays have pedimented and coped gables, the outer bays project slightly as short cross-wings. Moulded stone surround to entrance, bay 5, left, with overlight, console brackets, entablature and cornice. Former sash windows have C20 frames, plain sills and lintels. Round windows in outer bay gables; carved plaque in centre gable: 'LEEDS/ INDUSTRIAL SCHOOLS/ 1879'. INTERIOR: not inspected. Built as a boarding school, in almost open country with only large houses nearby, for less academic boys who were trained in manufacturing skills. Richard Adams was the most prolific of the Board School architects, this building represents one of his plainer but very imposing almost workhouse-style buildings. 180 boys lived here in 1903.
