Ace Architects of Victorian Leeds - Ambler to Wate

Ace Architects of Victorian Leeds - Ambler to Wate


An early morning walk that introduces the main designers and the structures they added to Leeds.

The growing industrial town needed more buildings: commercial, residential, civic and religious. How did demand, fashion, technology, legislation and individual creativity shape building styles, materials, forms and locations? How did architecture in Leeds relate to the wider picture of urban development? How does the Victorian heritage strike us now, after more than 100 years of change?
