Junction of Crown Point Road and the Calls. Palace side of Crown Point Bridge. Google Maps says the building is called Saxton House - wasn't aware of that.

I knew where this was taken so it seemed unfair to join in. See this thread http://www.secretleeds.co.uk/forum/Mess ... eadID=3335 that has a photo of the site that I took on August 19 2011 and the interesting replies to my query. PS. Sorry for the very large size of the photo with that thread. Since posting it I've had the software to reduce the size of a photo.

Correct, passed it and seen it for years, thought I'd pop it up here for explan.Also put this up cos I thought the "Horses Head" across the Calls would be too obvious (see pic) EditLeo -ta !Ref picture size - I found that system said I had too many pixies until Buffalo told me about the microsoft snipping tool. It is on most machines and you just crop it over your pics and it loads just fine.

Used to be place for rough sleepers into the late 60's I think. Was David Oluwale's last known sleeping place before he ended up in the river.
