Railway Roundhouse Leeds

Picture of railway roundhouse Leeds.

Many people drive past this unusual shaped building on the edge of Leeds city centre daily. I would think that few people passing give much thought to the truck hire business premises as they drive on by.

The building is round and was built in 1847 as a railway roundhouse with adjacent locomotive repair workshshop. Today the listed building is Grade II* because it is the oldest surviving railway roundhouse in the country. Last week the Leeds Civic Trust unveiled a blue plaque in its honour.

These days this former railway building is home to Leeds Commercial Van and Truck Rental. The building is on the A58 on the way out of Leeds and past the old Yorkshire Post building just beyond the old workshops that now house amongst other business Majestic Wines.

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.
