The 3 historic old towers in Holbeck now have a 'new one'.

Postby Leodian » Sat 20 Apr, 2019 2:39 pm

There are 3 historic old towers in Holbeck by Globe Road that have been landmarks for a long time in the area. Building work has been going on in the area for some while now and during a stroll by the side of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal on April 18 2019 I noticed that work on one new building is now very evident. To show the change in view I have added a photo that I took on January 31 2019 for comparison with one I took on April 18 2019 (the canal was partly frozen over when I took that on January 31 2019). Views seen of the old towers will presumably eventually change a lot.

If towers are your thing, take a look at the core shafts/whatever going up on the YEP site at the Kirkstall Road end of Wellington Street!

These are two photos that I took on May 23 2019 of the work going on. The first shows part of Wharf Approach/Office Lock bridge and the Canal Office building. The second shows part of the Office Lock feature on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal.
