What remains of the Victorian-era Leeds community that was wiped off the map

Steander was a district sitting next to Crown Point, close to the River Aire at east end of Leeds city centre.

It was home to a close-knit community of families, as well as an iron foundry, mill and timber yard.

The saw mill was the last major link to the area’s industrial past, as it became home to Howarth Timber, before eventually making way for the Gateway hotel and residential development in the 2000s.

While you may not see it listed on many maps today, some relics of Steander’s past still exist to this day.
