|||Armley Park, The Steps (Armley) (4 comments)
The 24 acres of Armley Park was acquired by the Corporation in 1892. This view of the 'arch steps' looking up from the Leeds and Liverpool canal vicinity. The land sloped steeply from the ridge down to the canal and several sets of steps were constructed to cope with this. Some followed scenic winding paths but these ran in a straight line and were often counted by young visitors to the park. The castellated archway bears the date of the formation of the park, 1893. The steps are flanked by stone pillars surmounted by Grecian style urns.

Towering in the background is the 32-storey Bridgewater House.
