THE STORY OF HEY’S NEW FLEECE

page4.html

Daniel Riddiough’s Peel Park Hotel was first licensed in 1852. The property was first called the Undercliffe Hotel before taking the name of the adjoining park. A brewery was built behind the new hotel with an entrance in Peel Park View. The pub and brewery buildings covered an almost triangular shaped area bounded by the afore mentioned Peel Park View, Park Crescent, Sydenham Place and Otley Road.

The College Gate referred to on the token was opposite Daniel Riddiough’s property at the other side of Otley Road. Airedale College was a religious educational establishment which had been transferred to the location from Idle in 1834. The new imposing structure had a Romanesque portico supported by four columns at the entrance. The  By 1877 the edifice must have become out of place and the occupants moved to a new college beyond Manningham.

Airedale College Terrace, Airedale College Road were built on the site using stone salvaged from the vacated property.

In 1872 the Peel Park Brewery Co. Ltd; was formed and Daniel Riddiough sold the business to new concern. The venture only lasted ten years before being totally insolvent with debts of £49,000 to creditors. Daniel Riddiough purchased the company and paid off the outstanding £51,333 on the outstanding mortgages. In 1890 the recently formed Hammond’s Bradford Brewery Co. Ltd; purchased eighteen of Riddiough’s Peel Park pubs for just over £60,000. Brewing then appears to have ended at the Undercliffe site. Mineral waters were subsequently produced there for a time.

Two of Daniel’s sons, Daniel Riddiough junior and William Riddiough were involved for a brief period when the Shipley Brewery traded as the Yorkshire Brewery Company in the early 1890s.

Many thanks to Paul Jennings for the additional details in the article.

Daniel Riddiough Peel Park Brewery token

A token issued by Daniel Riddiough proprietor of the Peel Park Brewery, Bradford.

View of the Alhambra Theatre and William Whitaker & Co. Ltd: The Old Brewery, Bradford, from the foot of Victoria Square. The picture was taken between the years 1914 and 1928.

This view shows the then recently built Alhambra Theatre situated at the end Morley Street and the premises of William Whitaker & Co. Ltd; The Old Brewery, Bradford, which was situated at the foot of Great Horton Road. The brewhouse is on the right of the photograph and the oldest part of the structure, the malthouse, is on Brewery Lane which led to Quebec Terrace. The business was said to have been established in 1757 and brewed on the site until 1928.

The theatre was officially opened on March 18th 1914 and demolition of brewery property commenced in September 1928. Between those years this picture was taken. The whole length of Brewery Lane and Quebec Terrace has since been renamed Quebec Street.  At the Great Horton Road end of the street there was some ancient kerb edging still remaining when I last visited the area.
