Black & White imageUndated. Clarence Dock, the terminus for the Aire & Calder Navigation Canal, showing the weir. This photograph was taken in the 1970s before the area was redeveloped. In 1996 the Royal Armouries was opened to the right of the image, and Clarence Dock is now a focus for city living with luxury apartments and leisure facilities.

On the left, the small building belonging to the Sea cadets is visible. The Royal Armouries was sited to the right and opened in 1996. The area has recently been part of a regeneration scheme by the Crosby division of the Berkeley Group. It commenced in April 2002 and is expected to reach completion in 2007. Included in the development will be 900 apartments, 500,000 square feet of leisure space and 70,000 square feet of commercial space. The semi-derelict industrial landscape of this image has now disappeared. Photograph courtesy of Stephen Howden.

Clarence Dock, looking south from Armouries Way (City Centre) (1 comment)
Colour imageUndated. View looking towards Clarence Dock from Armouries Way. This area was transformed in the 1990s/2000s from a rundown former working canal dock to a modern mixed use development featuring retail, office and leisure space as well as c1100 homes. On the far left is the Royal Armouries Museum, which began the transformation of the area when opened in 1996. Next to this is McClure House, then the tall block in the centre is Clarence House. On the right are LaSalle apartments followed by Livingstone House nearest the camera. Though an attractive place to live, the area has so far failed to take off as a shopping centre and in 2013 was rebranded and renamed Leeds Dock in a bid to attract more retailers to the site.
