The Seacroft Scroll


The Seacroft Scroll is a collection of stories and reflections from local residents, who have worked together over the course of a year to delve into the area’s heritage and history. The scroll has been developed by artists from the 365LeedsStories project in response to a request from Simon Hilton, Headteacher at Beechwood Primary School. It has been produced in partnership with children and staff from Beechwood and Seacroft Grange Primary Schools and librarians from Leeds Library and Information Service.
