History behind new building

Leeds Society for Deaf and Blind People acquired this new building in February 2017.

The society sold Centenary House in December 2016 and is currently in temporary accommodation at Protection House in Leeds.

Although some OS maps still show St Mary’s church here, the church despite its listed status was demolished in 1979. It can be glimpsed in the background in SE3033 : Quarry Hill Flats, Leeds during demolition.

The two-storey building was designed by Jones, Stocks and Partners.
