How about having a guess where the Secret Leeds banners are?I've not looked for this one, but it looks somewhere around the Calls, anyone any ideas? I presume they are taken in Leeds anyway

Nice one Phill. I've no idea where it is though and it does not scream it's in Leeds, as you say assuming it is which it surely must be! I think the grate seen is a grate and not a plague on a road. I guess the clues to finding the location is the cobbled road and what seems to be a fence (but a bit low for a riverside one).

I think we'd have to pin point it on Street view seen as no one really knows the answer lol

I must have a look next time I'm there to see if the bull is still there. Oh, and the Google Street View shows the building name as Wateroo House (not Waterloo House). I guess the Google image stitching was not quite precise!

Maybe chosen as a banner pic. due to its proximity to the site of a certain long running SL thread?

Didn't Cafe Rouge used to be round the back of the Corn Exchange then?
