Hodgson's Fold, HalifaxRef 19-84
Aka Hodgson's Yard, Mr Hodgson's Yard [1787], Samuel Hodgson's Yard [1787].

This was in the part of Halifax, around 14 King Street, north of the Parish Church.

The area was built in the early 19th century, covered 1816 square yards, and housed 21 children and 96 adults, paying rents of 3/- to 7/- per week. The houses were built by John Hodgson and the Hodgson family.

In 1934, Halifax Corporation decided that it would compulsorily purchase properties in this densely populated part of Halifax, as part of a clearance programme.

A public inquiry was held and the owners of the properties fiercely resisted the move, but the demolition went ahead, and Halifax Corporation said that the area was so diseased and unhealthy that the bug-infested timbers and other materials were to be burned and not reused.
