Time Capsule Yeadon – 1984
This photo was in a time capsule found in 1984 when the Church Institute was converted into apartments. Situated on Chapel Lane, the building seen here was built in 1766, the first Wesleyan Chapel in Yeadon. In 1854 it was sold to W B Crompton Stansfield of Esholt who allowed it to be used as a Church of England Mission and schoolroom. When St. Andrew’s Church was built in 1891 this building became known as “Old St. Andrew’s”, it was demolished in 1894 and replaced by the Church Institute.
