Original Harry Ramsden’s demolished due to asbestos find

The original shed in which Harry Ramsden’s was formed in Guiseley, near Leeds, in the 1920s has been demolished after asbestos was found in the building.

The decrepit, wooden building was used by Harry Ramsden to serve the first portion of fish and chips in December 1928.

The intention of the new owners was to protect it as part of the restaurant’s rich history, however they were unable to save it.

A spokeswoman for the company said: “It was in a very poor state of repair but once asbestos was found it had to be disposed of and demolished professionally.

“We were surprised to find asbestos and everyone involved was sad to see it go.”

The branch of Harry Ramsden’s was originally run from the shed – complete with a tree growing through it.
