An Aireborough landmark described as a “crumbling gem” is to re-open as a children’s nursery next month.

Nunroyd House in Yeadon was built in about 1890 for local mill owner and benefactor Jonathan Peate. It later became Brummel’s Nightclub before falling into disrepair.

The imposing building, in Nunroyd Park, was identified as in need of rescue last year by conservation charity Save Britain’s Heritage.

But the building has been restored after being bought by Louise Robinson and Jenny Elstub, who are opening the nursery.

The nursery will hold an open fun day from 11am, on Saturday, March 2.
