These Gothic-style buildings with gables, pinnacles and a magnificent central tower were intended to house eight elderly tenants of the nearby Gascoigne estate. Just to the west of the village is another unusual monument, a stone triumphal arch celebrating the American victory in theWar of Independence (1775-83).
original almshouses were sold by Leeds City Council and are now a thriving business centre. A substantial modern extension was built to the rear of the building in 2004 but the original front elevation is unchanged.
