Security Requirements / Reports For Stourton Leeds

Stourton is a mainly industrial area of the city of Leeds, West Yorkshire, England.

The area is 2 miles (3 km) to the south east of Leeds city centre and lies between Hunslet, the M1 motorway and Cross Green in the LS10 postcode area.

Until the local boundary changes in the 1970s, Stourton was a village in the Rothwell Urban District attached to the southernmost border of Leeds, and governed by the old West Riding County Council. Stourton dated from the Industrial Revolution and was a community of some 2,500 people with its own churches and pubs, but from the 1970s the housing was demolished to make way for motorways and industrial developments until by 1990 little remained of the village except its war memorial.[1][2] This memorial to "the men of Stourton and Thwaitegate" lists 75 names from World War I and 25 from World War II and was moved in about 1973 from St Andrew's church, Pontefract Road, when this was demolished; the new site was donated by Waddingtons, who also defrayed the costs of removal and re-erection.

A power station providing electricity for Leeds and the surrounding areas used to be located at Stourton. However, this was closed and demolished in the early 1990s. The associated substation remains in use however.

It was the home of some significant industry. John Waddingtons, Yorkshire Copperworks, Camerons Iron Works, Concrete Northern (Bison) being among the larger companies, as well as the afore mentioned Power Station and a not insignificant railway shunting yard. 

Golden Crown Security has operated in Stourton and has the ability to respond quick.
