Detailed map of Leeds (NW); Yorkshire sheet 218.01. Historical introduction by Alan Godfrey. The maps cover a major area of West and NW Leeds, encompassing a portion of the city centre, industry along the River Aire, the area now covered by the University, and residential areas of Burley and Woodhouse. Coverage stretches from Salisbury Road and Burley Grange eastward to Park Square and Vernon Road, and from Wellington Street and York Place northward to Brudenell Street and Royal Park Road. Kirkstall Road, Burley Road and Belle Vue Road run through the map. This is a busy and even crowded map but the many features include the River Aire with many industries nearby, Armley Mills, Leeds & Liverpool Canal, Albion ammunition works, Wellington Foundry, Leeds Forge, Scotch Foundry, Oak Tannery, Joppa tannery, stretches of the Midland and Leeds Northern railway approaches, portion of Armley (bottom left corner), Burley Lawn, Little Woodhouse, General Infirmary, Catholic College, Yorkshire College (later Leeds University), Trinity church, St George's church, General Cemetery. Despite the city centre and industry, vast swathes of back-to-back housing cover a lot of the map. As usual we include extracts from street directories on the reverse.

Leeds University is one of the old red brick Universities, which received...

Review of LeedsUniversity
Advantages: Great mix of people, music and cheap drinks Disadvantages: Disadvantages? What are they then???
...itself has a 1200 capacity and there's always a nice interesting mix of people. There's a great big sound system, huge video screen, air conditioning and sweeties and balloons (yes, helium ones too if you want to go for the Mickey Mouse effect!) and TWO BARS!!!! There are five resident DJ's - three in room 1 and two in room 2 (Mutate). Music is a great mix of alternative, 80's and Goth in room 1...
Advantages: Excellent Atmosphere Disadvantages: Too many students and not enough facilities
...equipment and people have to wait around to share!

All year round there is something exciting going on outside the union including a visit from the from the faggot family promoting...
