Warrel's Mount, home to suffragette Mary Gawthorpe's blue plaque. This is the home Mary rented with her mother during the time she joined Leeds Arts Club. Mary developed a skill at public speaking through her involvement with a trade union and contact with the early socialist movement in the city. After being inspired by Christabel Pankhurst, Mary joined the campaign for women's suffrage and was quickly appointed as national organiser for the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU). Microfilmed copies of her personal documents and mementos can be viewed at the Leeds Central Library, Local and Family History Department.
