Flats in Lincoln Green

Lincoln Green is an area of Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. The area falls within the Burmantofts and Richmond Hill ward of the City of Leeds Council. The area is mainly residential with a small local shopping centre. The area also has a public house, The Harp, and a working men's club, The North Leeds WMC. Most housing in Lincoln Green is council-owned high-rise flats; these are in a significantly worse condition then those in other areas of the city. Lincoln Green is one of the most deprived areas of the city. Lincoln Green used to have a secondary school, Agnes Stewart C of E Secondary School, but this closed in July 2006.[1] Primrose High School in neighbouring Burmantofts is close by. Lincoln Green is to be featured on the ITV programme Seven Days on the Breadline.

The area's shopping centre was opened on 3 November 1962 by Pat Phoenix (Elsie Tanner from Coronation Street ).[2]
