Here's a guess where Leeds I'm not sure of the answer myself, however I have a good clue it's somewhere between Civic Hall, along the Woodhouse Lane corridor to Weetwood Hall. Anyone any ideas where this is?

I'm pretty certain this is on the University Campus. It is near the junction of Cavendish Road and Lodge Street, and quite far from the main road so you are quite right that it's not that readily visible. If you were to enter the campus from the Parkinson Building entrance barrier then it would be just down the hill towards town from there.

I would say that was spot on Barnie and Uncle Mick.Great work, It's a very ornate dome is that, and one I can't say I've seen before.http://goo.gl/maps/JJ6av

That was an good W&W and one I had even no vague idea that I may have seen it before!Now knowing where it is I thought I would look up Google Maps and this is a link to a map from that which has some interesting features:- http://goo.gl/maps/CicXa1). It seems that Lodge Street has been split into two, so I wonder when that was?2). What is the large building just left of centre that seems to have its internal design shown?3). 'The Cooling Pond' surprised me, as I would never have guessed that there is a pond so near the centre of Leeds.In would be grateful for any help. In view of the fact that I seem to be melting in the heat 'The Cooling Pond' seems like a good place to be just now!

That's the 'cooling pond' Leo, more often than not used by drunken students at night
