HISTORICAL NOTE: the house stands in the SW corner of the 'Leeds New Town' development of the Squire's Pasture estate which the 5th Earl Cowper sold to a partnership for ยป29,860 in 1825. The development was intended to provide large houses out of the smoke-laden atmosphere of the city centre, but in 1828 the Earl had to repurchase the land following the partnership's bankruptcy and building was slow, this house being one of few built by 1847 (Nos 50, 52 & 54 Spencer Place, qv). It was later used as the communal offices of the United Hebrew Congregation. Now studios of the Northern School of Contemporary Dance.
