Whackhouses – 2015

As above.

Previous Comments:

I assume this is what used to be Wackhouse Lane? Wackhouse is an old version of workhouse. Why did Leeds City Council change the name? It now implies there was more than one workhouse which there wouldn’t have been. Or is this a new development off Wackhouse Lane?

Whackhouses and Whack House Lane are in two different locations in Yeadon.
