Malcolm Toft writes:-
The Orrell family (Arthur, James, and mother Mary) came to the house c1895 as tenants for “a well known private family”.
Previously they had been at the Leeds Arms, 8 Vicar Lane, Bradford. There Arthur had been brewer with his brother and mother also working at the inn. Arthur died in 1910 aged 54 and weighing twenty-two stone. The concern lasted another fourteen years before being acquired by Leeds & Wakefield Breweries Ltd in 1925.
The building has now been demolished.
