Leeds (Pevsner Architectural Guides: City Guides)
Leeds (Pevsner Architectural Guides: City Guides)

Leeds is a city with a rich commercial tradition and fine buildings to match. Its prosperity, founded on the wool trade, is reflected in the seventeenth-century church of St John, with its magnificent Jacobean woodcarving and furnishings, while the town's eighteenth-century expansion produced elegant Georgian parades and squares with homes for wealthy merchants. They now stand cheek-by-jowl with solid, proud warehouses and offices of the railway age in a wonderful variety of styles ranging from elegant neo-Grecian to Gothic, Moorish and Egyptian. The civic pride of Victorian Leeds has as its crowning glory the grand Town Hall, testament to the talent of Cuthbert Brodrick, whose Corn Exchange and Mechanic's Institute make powerful use of dark and gritty local sandstone. Along the banks and wharfs of the River Aire and the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, now being revived for twenty-first-century living, are unique and nationally important industrial survivals including the inspired Egyptian-style Temple Mills and the unforgettable campanile of Tower Works. The twentieth century gave the city its outstanding university campus and recent regeneration has led to a revival of the city's public spaces and famously ornate and opulent Edwardian shopping arcades and markets. In the suburbs and beyond lie comfortable mansions and major Victorian churches while survivors of a different past can be found in the parish church of Adel, one of the most complete Norman churches in Yorkshire, the romantic ruins of Kirkstall Abbey and the mighty C17 mansion at Temple Newsam.

Paint It White: Following Leeds Everywhere
Paint It White: Following Leeds Everywhere

In his dedication to Leeds United, Gary Edwards has no rivals. He has seen every Leeds game since 17 January 1968, home and away. League, Cup and Europe. And pre-season friendlies. Hell, he even watches the reserves in his spare time. Following Leeds, he's been there, done that and designed the T-shirt. Although a painter and decorator-cum-signwriter-cum-cartoonist, he's never taken a break from his life as a full-time football fan. He's made a name for himself covering over red paint with white for free. He's visited every country in Europe and flown all over the rest of the world to watch Leeds play. If Leeds organised a five-a-side on the moon, he'd be on the first shuttle flight there. Travelling the world to watch hundreds of players run around acres of grass, he's also found time to drink gallons of ale, see oceans of flesh and protect hundreds of animals. He's saved lobsters in Barcelona, clay pigeons in Worksop, frogs in Kuala Lumpur and worms - yes, worms - in Yorkshire. He's been shot at in Greece, run over in Denmark, frightened the king in Sweden and had a beer with an elephant in Bangkok. All this and still found the time to never miss a match or another chance to rid

Leeds United: Trials and Tribulations
Leeds United: Trials and Tribulations

Leeds United's freefall from championship contenders and Champions League semi-finalists in 2000 to relegation battlers in 2004 is one of the most spectacular stories in Premiership history. Theirs is a story of financial mismanagement on a grand scale, brought about by a naive belief that their living dream would go on forever. Under the chairmanship of Peter Ridsdale and management of David O'Leary they thought big, spent big and won nothing, leading the club to the brink of administration. Against this background of financial uncertainty, Leeds United have had a roller coaster four years on and off the pitch. The trials of Jonathan Woodgate, Lee Bowyer and Michael Duberry following a late-night affray in Leeds city centre were a daily distraction for a club holding such lofty ambitions. Yet they continued to play well until Christmas 2001 when O'Leary went into print with his outrageous tome, Leeds United on Trial, following which he was sacked and replaced by Terry Venables. After a short and turbulent period as manager, Venables was then replaced by Peter Reid. A poor run of results saw Reid sacked and he soon became the third manager in quick succession to be owed a substanti
