One thing about this underworld thing is I've had 300 + hits from search engines for 'underworld Leeds' and 'dark arches' on my flickr stuff since yesterday. I can always tell when something is coming up, the search results for certain photos building up for a few days.

It happens with my R.A.F Bempton underground bunker photos every year. It's the anniversary when that lad from Hull who went there mysteriously vanished and was never seen again. I have another photo called 'Wolf's lair' that gets masses of hits on Hitlers birthday, it isn't even the proper wolfs liar, mines in Derbyshire Regular Smiley

Because lunacy was the influence for an album. It goes without saying that an album about lunacy will breed a lunatics obsessions with an album - The Dark side of the moon!

One thing for sure also is that the view of the Dark Arches where the River Wharfe emerges will be dramatically changed. Judged by the artist's impression it won't be long before we hear of people falling into the river. Oh, and cleaning the glass (or whatever it will be) could be a nice little earner for a window cleaning firm!

Hi Leodian when did they divert the river Wharfe into Leeds.? LOL

It was moved temporarily for the Overworlds and Underworlds event, Tilly. That's what cost £500K. They've put it back now. Wink

Hi Tilly.

Oops, red-faced me! I think my mind must have been thinking of the very nearby Granary Wharf, which made me state River Wharfe. Well, (apart from ever increasing senility) that's the quickest excuse I can think of just now that might be believed! Regular Smiley

There used to be a Chinese student work in the New Roscoe, very nice girl she was, good English too, but the one thing she couldn't get a grasp of is when one of the old lads Les asked for a pint of Green King, she'd look daft at him.. A pint for drinking? No.. A pint of GREEN KING he replied? huh drinking? she'd say.. In the end he had to point it out to her Regular Smiley
