In 1853 this was the premises of J Clark, coach builder; by 1876 Clark and Sons were the West Riding Carriage Works. The business continued until at least 1881 and the 1900 Directory Shows that J Stansfield Ltd, iron and steel merchants then used the buildings, (they were probably responsible for the single-storey office/reception, the numbers over the archways

and remnants of painted signwork on the north side of the courtyard). (Directories of Leeds for 1853, 1876, 1881 & 1900).
