Duke of Wellington – Leeds

Picture of statue of Wellington on Woodhouse moor, Leeds.

Walking back across Woodhouse moor I passed the bronze statue of the Duke of wellington. The statue of the hero of Waterloo Arthur Wellesley was erected in the square in front of Leeds town hall in 1855. However it was boarded up until Queen Victoria came to Leeds in 1858 to open the town hall.

Later in 1937 the square was redesigned and the statue of the Iron Duke as he was known was moved to its current position on the edge of Woodhouse moor.

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.
