The archway/door is still there as seen in these 2 photos that I took on November 2 2021. It's an interesting feature that is surprisingly still there. Presumably nobody wants to build there, for now! :)

I think proximity to the river and Asda House would have limited development on TV he waste ground. That it was put back, presumably as a condition of the area being used as a wharfe during construction of the Station southern entrance, suggests some protection. It looks like it will soon be in the shadow of a footbridge https://publicaccess.leeds.gov.uk/onlin ... ZVQJBHXV00

Many thanks for your reply tyke bhoy glad it is being preserved i know its not much has buildings go, but to me we have lost so much with the march of progress. We need to keep has much has we can for posterity or other wise a lot of Leeds historical past will be lost, i am sure that in the future there will be regret about some buildings that have been demolished in the path of progress.

Hi tilly :).
Your observations are true and it's sad to see photos of some long or even not so long demolished buildings. Sadly though some could never be fully renovated to meet modern needs. I suspect that many years down the line when some of the generally unloved modern buildings have been demolished there will be concerns then that history is being lost.

Hi tyke bhoy :).
Thanks for that very interesting link whose contents I was not aware of. The 'HISTORIC ARCH RELOCATION' section is very relevant to the thread.
I still though wonder why the arch was kept when all around it was demolished.Whenever that was perhaps someone just thought it seemed worth keeping, as I would not have thought it had a preservation order then.

Hi Leodian So true if anyone says things like this we are accused of having rose tinted glasses there is a lot more to it than that.I dont know the thoughts of the younger generation but i suspect a lot of them are not bothered.History does not seem high on there priorities i could be wrong i hope so.
