Just had a look on Leodis in the 1930s there were 55 public houses in Hunslet now 16.

I think that Jack is correct and the pub was the Red House Inn. Saville’s was at 19 Church Street and the Red House Inn was at the junction with Iron Street (9 Church Street). Iron Street was only a very short distance from Low Road.

The Hunslet Remembered site has long gone to the Spirit of the Sky Web, you can however still access it via the Wayback Machine Archives here, should be of great interest to Sid

Is this the end of the story ...or the beginning of a legend?

I made a big mistake in my reply about the Red Lion, the pud i was talking about was the British Queen old age takes over sometimes where i got the Red Lion from i dont know.I am with Ian it must have been the Red House we were looking for.
