I spent many happy time in the beech in the 1970s when Stan Dodds was the landlord and also later when John McCormack took it over. Good ale, good company, what more could one ask for ?. Sadly gone for ever.

The beech is actually open for business, I was there a few weeks ago, nice decor, all features original except for the loo, friendly bar staff and a nice pint! (Midnight bell when I called)

This turned up on Facebook the other day. A glimpse of The Clarendon ( mentioned on page 178 of this thread)
It was at the junction of Water Lane & Victoria Road (The Clarendon is behind the tram)

I don't know anything about The Highfield pub but this is a link to an image in the Leodis website showing the pub in an image dated 7th July 1964 http://www.leodis.net/display.aspx?reso ... SPLAY=FULL

Hi snowman1 – I think that you mean South Ridge Street, as mentioned by Jack. (Southfield Street was off Strawberry Lane at Armley, Leeds 12)

South Ridge Street was situated at 104 Beeston Road to 23 Highfield Street, Beeston, Leeds 11. The street was at the top of Beeston Hill, just before Lodge Lane, but on the west side of the road. It ran parallel to Cemetery Road and Malvern Road and was in between them. All of the terrace houses in the area around the pub and the street have been demolished and new houses have taken their place. Where South Ridge Street was situated is now an area of parkland with trees.

The Highfield Pub has been discussed before on Secret Leeds:

@snowman1

This view on the excellent side by side mapping site should give you a better feel for where it was.
Just along Ashley place by the Malvern cinema the turn left up Westmount St to get you in the general area.
