Closure for historic Leeds pub with proud role in story of Tetley’s

The Fleece in Farsley.

The Fleece in Farsley.

Have your say

A Leeds pub with an historic claim to licensed trade fame has shut unexpectedly.

The Fleece, on Town Street in Farsley, was one of the first pubs bought by Tetley’s as the Hunslet-based brewery expanded its operations in the final years of the 19th century.

Now, though, its doors have closed – but drinkers with an interest in the city’s brewing heritage shouldn’t start drowning their sorrows just yet.
