Event description
Join me to explore how Leeds expanded to the west of the medieval town during the early industrial period

About this Event

Maurice Beresford (1920-2005) was professor of economic history at the University of Leeds. One of his enthusiasms was for understanding how the urban area of Leeds developed. His 1988 book ‘East End, West End’ tells that story: “… a fascinating, massive piece of detailed scholarship … based on a wide range of sources”. To mark the centenary of his birth (6th Feb 2020) I’ll summarise how Maurice uncovered the story of the expansion of the cloth trading town of Leeds.

Saturday is the East End; Sunday the West End.

Meet in City Square, beside the Joseph Priestley statue outside Banyan

See also the tour I’ll lead on Maurice’s birthday, 6th February, based on the research we did together on the history of the office district.
