Thanks xyros - I have it now. My memory was confusing it possibly with Park View Flats - a strange building on the left between Elmsall and Kirkby Green - there had been some kind of mysterious tragedy there in the late 1990s but I can't remember what it was.
Back to Secret Leeds though now - I could go on for ever on other topics but that won't do !! Laugh

that long block of flats opposite the tennis courts, don't think i've heard of anything goin on there. my dad used to own a couple of the units on the industrial estate behind them flats, wonder if he ever heard of anything there.

anyways, i agree, enough off topicness and back to the haunted pubs

Now it is easy to look through threads i found this one i had forgotten.
Anybody heard whether The Old Red Lion on Marsh Lane still has the upstairs floor deserted partly because of the ghost?
I haven't been in for years.

My Uncle Billy Leach used to be L andlord of the Smiths Arms on Marsh Lane about 1955 (I think) and the story in our family was that one night when they and staff were having a drink after time they saw what looked like an old lady dressed in full length old fashioned clothes walked along the end of the bar in the passage and then disappeared

In the mid 70s I used to use this pub when one lunch time I called in and the landlady and the barmaid were deep in conversation .earwigging I heard that the previous night the Landlord and a couple of regulars were having "afters" when they saw an old lady dressed in old fashioned clothing and very similar to the story I recounted earlier. this pub was extremely old (now demolished) and that it was said it was built over an old graveyard. I had never mentioned this story previously to the Landlord.

(Apologies if I have posted this before )

No grave yard down there I'm afraid. The nearest being the Parish church and the graveyard associated with St Peters non conformist chapel on Quarry Hill.

Don't remember this Pub ?. The Woodpecker, (possibly) The Railway and The Smiths Arms are the only ones I knew.

I never believed in ghosts untill i came face to face with one!


Last sentence of the post i was replying to, which is copied above that reply says-

" this pub was extremely old (now demolished) and that it was said it was built over an old graveyard. I had never mentioned this story to the Landlord."

The location of the pub being referred to by this poster was not on a grave yard, that is what i was replying to.

Having been in a Wakefield pub the other night when something weird happened (7 glasses one after another fell off a straight shelf with nobody near0 and totally missing it as I was in the next room at Pagan moot, I wondered if there have been any new sightings,pub tales in Leeds?
Especially as we have a lot of new bars.
