History Of The Property - Some very interesting History of this property has been supplied by the current Vendor who advises that one of the former owners of this house and who in fact lived here for 20 years, was Sir Henry Francis Lockwood, an influential architect who built a vast amount of Bradford's most distinguished buildings, including St George's Hall (1851-2), the Venetian Gothic Wool Exchange (1864-7), and the Continental Gothic Revival City Hall (1869–73).
They also laid out and designed the mill, model town and church at Saltaire (1851–76), all in an Italianate Classical style. At the time, Saltaire was one of the most important examples of a philanthropic industrial and housing development in the world. Lockwood is mentioned in most accounts of Sir Titus Salt and Saltaire. Lockwood and Mawson also submitted designs in many competitions, including the contest for the Law Courts in the Strand, London (1866–67).[5]
