Today I walked from Otley to Guiseley via East and West Carlton. The walk up Otley Chevin was arduous, it is probably the longest and steepest hill in Leeds. When I got to the top I wanted to sit down and have a drink to recuperate. I saw a lay-by at East Carlton, and there was a low wall by the side of it. I sat on the wall, had a drink and ate an orange. Then something behind me caught my eye and I saw this. Paul Kingsley was murdered 22 years ago, and his body was left behind the wall that I was sat on at the lay-by. What a terrible crime and a dreadful end to a young life. The wreath and photo had been placed there 2 years ago. A news article is here: https://ift.tt/2ArxNxI #RIPPaulKingsley

#History in plain sight. This #building on #Boroughgate in #Otley still bares the #advertising marks of #GoldFlake tobacco. I’ve no idea exactly how old those painted adverts would have been, but I would guess 1950s. #architecture #promotion #advert #art #culture #Leeds #LeedsPhoto #LeedsHistory #IgersLeeds #VisitLeeds #VisitOtley #travel #tourism #tourist #leisure #life
