Stables near Coffee House Bridge 1903

Postby gibbo65 » Wed Aug 10, 2016 11:39 am

I am looking for help with details about some stables located near to Coffee House Bridge over the Leeds LIvepool canal around 1903.
The buildings may have been owned or rented by Alice Young ( nee Jones or Warner-Jones) or Robert Young.
I have a few maps of around that time but cannot locate the stables which i assume either serviced the canal horses or perhaps joined onto a coach house.
Any help or direction would be welcome Thank you.

Will ask my uncle Joey he may remember something on this. :wink: :wink: :wink:
Proctors come to mind at the bottom of canal street by coffee house bridge.
Maybe Bobhamo will have info on this.
My uncle Bob passed away this year 94 he had all the information around canal street and coffee house bridge.
Regards Bob Great post.

Thank you both for those street names it gives me a much smaller area to look into and at least I can identify the streets on the map I have. If anything else comes up please let me know. Thanks again.

Hi Bobhamo, thanks for the details i'll look into the Foley Street connections with Robert Young as soon as i can. The Robert Young i am after is my great grandfather but the only lead i had was the stables in 1903 so you have possibly taken me a step further.
best wishes gibbo65

John Packenham had a yard at the bottom of Ashcroft St/Bank Rd where he stored the scrap metal (mostly old gas cookers) also in the yard was a stable block that was used to house several donkeys that pulled the rag and bone carts, (it was known locally as little Melwood) JJC.

Hi Henry your right we lived in no2 Bank Cottages off Bank rd , i remember the stables well they were at the bottom of our rd , we played in them many times as kids the ragmen would leave there carts there , Bank Cottages were very poor houses it was tough growning up there but many a good time , Sad times were 3 young lads killed in the canal and railway . .
