Image shows the path round the ravine heading towards the back of the Upper Lake at Roundhay Park. The lake was set out during the mid-nineteenth century, and surrounded by woods. In the 1880s, the Council altered the lake to a uniform depth of three feet, to allow people to skate safely upon it. 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).
