certainly I can tell you where I got the information from
If you ever go into Leeds Prison as it is now known, there is a book that that records all the events that are related to Leeds Prison it contains all the details. This book is in the prison library and it as far as I am aware never as been in the public domain, so if you want to see it you may have a problem unless you get six months.
The book was available in 1977 and I have no knowledge that it still exists that was the last time I saw the book
I have knowledge of the movement of the gallows in the 1950s when the location was moved from one side of the kitchen corridor to the other a distance of approx 10 metres.
this was done to allow a extension to the reception area of the prison to be built.
nothing remains of the condemend cell and the gallows I believe they demolished around 1990 when the kitchen moved to a new location within the prison.
