This is the first 'External Submission'. Thanks to Michael for sending this in. I wouldn't have known where it is!Identify this architectural feature of Leeds (close up & out of context). What is it & where is it?If you would like to submit a picture for the competition, don't post it up direct. Please send it to [email protected] (with the answer), & I will post it up when this one has been identified... probably by PhilD!

I'll take a stab at the Sphinx in the garden of Harewood House.

I don't like this one... I don't know it. GRRR! It's obviously outside so it can't be in the city center. Powers of deduction are called for! Do we get clues on these? It's gotta be further afield. Stately home perhaps? Lotherton hall or somewhere???

If it was anyone else, I'd give them a clue at this point. Ha!

It's obviously elevated. At first I thought it might be on top of a building, but - is it the gates of Temple Newsham?
