Ace architects of Victorian Leeds - Ambler to Wate

Details

A walk that sets the best 19th century buildings in the context of their times.

Come and find out about the buildings designed between the late 1830s and the turn of the 20th century.

The growing industrial town needed more buildings: commercial, residential, civic and religious. How were building styles, materials, forms and locations influenced by demand, fashion, technology, legislation and individual creativity? 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?
