Welcome to Walk it Leeds – this is Sign A13
Walk it Leeds is a project aimed at making it easy for you to make your way around Leeds City Centre on foot.
This sign gives you clear, easy-to-read mapping of the local area. It shows you the main shopping areas in yellow, places to eat and drink in orange, and other places of interest in purple.
The map is known as ‘heads up’, which means the map is orientated to the direction you are looking at it, rather than having north at the top.
The sign is also solar powered, so the map should be backlit if it’s before 9pm and if it’s dark.
This sign was installed in October 2012 and the map was last updated in November 2011. If you spot any mistakes or damage, we’d be pleased to hear from you. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0113 2474685.
You are at sign A13 on Neville Street, on Victoria Bridge. This bridge was built in 1839 just after the coronation of Queen Victoria (hence the bridge’s name), it replaced a wooden footbridge which was swept away by a flood in 1829.
By far the most dominant architectural feature in this area is the 32 storey Bridgewater Place, which is nicknamed ‘The Dalek’. At 112 metres tall, it is the tallest building in Yorkshire. It opened in 2007 and is a mix of residential apartments and offices.
