The Abbey House Museum is across the main road from Kirkstall Abbey itself (see yesterday) and was once the Abbey's gatehouse. It is run as a museum of social history, by Leeds City Council. The ground floor is arranged as a series of Victorian streets, with shops and houses featuring original shop fittings and contents. It is interesting to wander round, though a bit difficult for photos even though our camera club had negotiated that we could use tripods. There wasn't much room to manoeuvre.
Some of the shop fronts - a hardware shop and a grocer.
An old-fashioned wash tub and mangle.
The cosy interior of a cottage.
Bust of Queen Victoria in the 'Hark to Rover' Inn.
