Knostrop Sewage Works, Knowsthorpe Lane, Leeds
Leeds Corporation opened Knostrop Sewage Works in Knowsthorpe Lane in 1848, and over the years it has undergone various programmes of modernization. Between the years of 1898 and 1906 Knostrop Sewage Works was the focus of research into the process and disposal of sewage. The site benefited from being surrounded by standard gauge railways. This enabled sidings to be constructed to the Great Northern and Waterloo Main branch lines for the transportation of sewage sludge etc., but by 1908 the sewage works had its own narrow gauge railway. This part of the works is no longer in use.
