Leeds Station is one of the UK’s biggest and busiest train stations. Leeds now has only one major train station and over 18 platforms. It has recently been refurbished to increase capacity and you know it was needed when you see the streams of weekend clubbers arriving for a night out.
Victoria Arcade. The posher part of Yorkshire
Who would have thought – Harvey Nichols and John Lewis in Yorkshire. Doing well, despite us Yorkshire folk keeping us hands on us brass
Impressive old buildings in the centre of Leeds. I don’t think the architects dropped a brick when they selected the outer cladding. The rosey red bricks have lasted the test of time and are still very appealing.
Taxi’s waiting by the train station. The queue goes round the block and at peak times a marshall is needed to keep the drivers in order. It doesn’t seem so long ago that you could drive through and drop or pick up passengers (but then again I remember when we had two stations in Leeds to choose from.)
One of the many new apartment blocks of flats in the city centre. The landscape of Leeds city centre had changed drastically in past 10 years as smart new office blocks and flats have sprung up across the city.
Leeds Cathedral making a change from the retail facilities of mammon.

Mill Hill Chapel with some fine mosaics and a William Morris window
You can’t keep a good pub down!! Many folk sign for their supper down at T’ Grove
