Nineveh Road Bridge Holbeck

Postby MiggyBill » Fri 01 Jul, 2016 11:53 am

I have tried searching and have not found any info on Secret Leeds, sorry if I have duplicated.

Below is a link to a site explaining how the bridge over the railway on Nineveh Road Holbeck was replaced, very interesting.

Great pictures but I would like to know more about the red brick building on the corner of Marshall St. It's more than likely to have been on here already but i can't find it. I believe it was a Library at one time and we used to drink in there when it was converted to a Pub possibly about late 1960s.

Sorry to remain off topic.

"The Cambrian" gets a mention or two here http://www.secretleeds.com/viewtopic.php?t=975&start=40
and it appears a few times on Leodis http://www.leodis.net/searchResults.asp ... D=&PUBID=0

According to the narrative and comments on Leodis it opened as a Library in 1903 was still a library into the late 50s and maybe early 60s. May have jointly been a Mother and Baby centre from the late 50s. Suggestions are it was only a pub/restaurant (The Cambrian) from some time in the 80s and is now office space.

Thanks for that MiggyBill. The site is very interesting. Clicking on the individual project links brings up interesting information on other localish projects at such as Fairburn and Micklefield.

I was though very baffled when clicking on the Project+ link and this came up:- "Sed placerat scelerisque. Nascetur ridiculus mus. Vestibulum rutrum nibh a eros. Cum sociis natoque penatibus et magnis dis parturient montes, nascetur ridiculus mus. Pellentesque nonummy, lorem non elementum consequat, velit diam iaculis erat, eget venenatis neque dui sed ligula.". :?

The old library building is occupied by a design company called WPA Pinfold. There's a page with some history and details of how they use it now at https://wpa-pinfold.co.uk/wpa-goes-underground/

The faux-Latin on the Projects+ page is just filler text. It usually begins with "lorem ipsum". I'm guessing they wanted to get the project pages up but didn't get round to completing the main page.

Hi

Great to see my website linked to this forum - the Nineveh road project was a long time ago - I have not been able to update my website since last year and hence there are a few problems with some of the links hence the gobbledygook :lol: on some of the links - if you go on the home page - you can click on any of the photographs and they open up each individual project.

I worked on a large number of projects in Leeds - I was part of the design team that worked on the Leeds 1st project in 1999 then Nineveh road in 2001.

I worked for Alfred McAlpine on Leeds Inner Ring road Stage 7 and the bridges at Junction 4 of the M621 are on my website. The cable stay bridge over the M621 is also on the website. :D

I was in Leeds a few weeks ago at CATS and I happened to drive under the "temporary" Mitchell footbridge on Wellington Street I was amazed to find that it was still there - I organised the removal of the old one and this bridges installation in 2007 !! (the photo's are on my website) it was only to be in in place for six months !!

Anyway hope you enjoy the pictures and website
