Great find, Lee. Taken in the 60s I'd guess, so long after the Crown and Fleece closed, but they do show how the now demolished building (to the right of the first pic) abutted the pub, and the entrance to the skulls ginnel leading to Kirkgate.
I noticed that the fifth comment on the pictures mentions the skulls.


I noticed that comment too - who's gonna put a link to this thread? lol

Because lunacy was the influence for an album. It goes without saying that an album about lunacy will breed a lunatics obsessions with an album - The Dark side of the moon!

Why can't I comment on the photo on Facebook?

Is it because the group owner switched off my rights cos I said that some pics were ripped from Leodis without a reference Cool

dont know if this has already been mentioned as there are so many pages but i came across this - Notes on the parish church (Barwick) - The Venerable Bede refers to a "monastery of the most reverend abbat and priest Thridwulf, which is in Elmet Wood " (Eccl. Hist., ii, cap. xiv). Some have thought that this was at Barwick, and according to a local tradition the site was marked by yew trees at Potterton, which were felled a few years ago. But we cannot speak with any certainty.

Go to oldmaps and look at the map for Barwick - 1845 - 1847 , drag the map to potterton and manor garth wood - just to the left and below (or within) manor garth wood it is marked 'Yew' could this be the site of this monastery? i would upload the photo but am at work and wouldnt know how to do that anyway.

well ive just found some more - go to pastscape.org.uk , monument number - 54569. the description reads: Alleged moat and other earthworks, and traditional site of a monastery founded by Abbot Thrydwulf circa 730, and a seventh century fortification. Earthworks at the traditional site appear to be the result of quarrying, and no clear evidence of enclosures or buildings are visible. Three stone coffins and a stone axe have been found in the area.
PARISH: BARWICK IN ELMET AND SCHOLES
LOCATION: SE 4028 3877

Think ive found your monastery!
