Harehills on Wikipedia.

The former Ashley Road Methodist Church, which stands at the junction of Ashley Road and Ashton Mount. The 25" O.S. map of 1908 shows two chapels on this site, a Chap., and immediately adjacent to its west, a U.M. Church (United Methodist). What the relationship between these was (if any) is unclear. A newspaper article (scroll down to number 3) includes a photo of Ashley Road Methodist Church undergoing demolition in 1984 - this would appear to be the U.M. church. SE 3211 3495. Michael Bourne.
