Blenheim Lodge Woodhouse – Victorian Family Home

Picture of Blenheim Lodge on Blackman Lane,Woodhouse, Leeds

Walking through Woodhouse was for me a chance to explore some parts of this area that I cannot recall ever having been to. This was the case when I chanced upon the above house shown in the above photo Blenheim Lodge.

Blenheim Lodge was built for the Bulmer family in 1853 and the 1881 census shows that living in Blenheim Lodge at that time were…

Charles Bulmer born 1824 in Leeds, Solicitor Clerk Of The Peace For The Borough Of Leeds.
Susannah Bulmer born 1826 in Leeds, wife.
Ada H. Bulmer born 1861 in Leeds, Daughter.
Sarah Ann Kirk born 1852 in Lincoln, Housekeeper.

Ada Bulmer never married and was the last person to live in the house, before the Leeds education authority took it over in 1935 and used it as day nursery. Later Blenheim Lodge became an Early Years Centre which it remained until that was closed and I believe that today the house is now a home once more, although I think divided into flats.

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
