Roundhay Park, Hill 60, in snow
Description:
January 1013. View shows children and adults sledding down Hill 60 in Roundhay Park. Sledging down the Hill has been a popular recreation for children using the park for generations. The Hill is so named to commemorate the soldiers from Leeds who died in combat around ‘Hill 60’ in Ypres, Belgium, in 1915. This image was digitised as part of the ‘Future Prospects of Urban Parks’ project, conducted by the University of Leeds in partnership with Leeds City Council, supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (grant number: AH/N001788/1).
