Gateway at Kirkstall Abbey

Picture of a gateway to gardens at Kirkstall Abbey park, Leeds.

This gateway is in the gardens of Kirkstall Abbey park adjacent to the Abbey House museum.

The abbey itself is just across the other side of Kirkstall Road the A64, quite a busy road but there is a pedestrian crossing. Though the abbey car park is on this side of the road anyway.

The plaque on the gateway is in honour of Geoff Hodgson and reads:
Geoff Hodgson 1920 – 2001
Respected and tireless friend and guardian of the Kirkstall community.

This plaque was placed here by the Kirkstall village community association of which Geoff was once treasurer.

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
