Greenwood & Batley
Nearby in Armley stood the Albion Works of Greenwood & Batley. Here they made all manner of machinery, including large numbers of battery electric locomotives. The company went bankrupt in 1980 and was bought by Hunslet Engine Co who subsequently transfared the work to Hunslet. The Albion Works was mothballed for a time but ended up demolished, nothing remains of the works today and the name can only be seen on The Albion pub that stood next to it, this itself is now closed.
