Sad to hear. Phil had lots of very interesting and informative inputs into Secret Leeds such as in particular his Sheepscar Beck to the River Aire under the ground account. I wonder with his knowledge if he ever had any written records printed in such as booklet forms.

I agree with your comments Leo. Phil's posts were a "must-read" when I first joined this group.
It used to be said that the statue of the Black Prince had been placed in City Square , near the station, pointing South to tell all the southerners who've just got off the train to b****r off back down south!

Sad indeed to hear this. He was certainly one of the leading lights on here at one point, his Meanwood Beck exploration and mapping being one of the things that drew me in, and fired ongoing my interest in a lot of this stuff. Not quite sure what the deal was with him disappearing from here and setting up on Facebook, but he posted some fantastic stuff over there too. RIP.
