A black and white trip around Leeds

The Corn Exchange designed by Cuthbert Broderick is an iconic building in the city. It seems to have struggled over the last few years but has now turned a corner and seems to be moving on. This photo was taken on Leeds Light night and the venue was full

110,ooo passenger pass through Leeds Railway Station everyday. It is a major hub served by various railway companies unfortunately for many one of them is Norther Railway a company that tries very hard but consistently fails with overcrowded trains, trains cancelled at short notice.

Leeds Railway Station has gone through various refits and although some of it dates back to the 1930's much is seventies in origin

City House was a classic sixties mistake but it has recently been redeveloped along with the front of the station that has been completely redesigned

Bridgewater Place is the tallest building in Leeds and I believe still the tallest building in Yorkshire.

Sadly the Tetley brewery building in Leeds has been closed and Tetleys is no longer brewed in Leeds

The bottom of Vicars Lane around the Corn Exchange is next up for development so this view will probably change over the next few years
