#Sunset along #MavisAvenue in #Cookridge, #Leeds this #evening. I was out on my government sanctioned 30 minutes of #exercise #walk after a hard day in my home office. Lots of others were out #walking and cycling too. There were many less cars on the road and every passing bus was empty. I have to say though, that #SocialDistancing was well practiced by all walkers, so well done all. #LS16 #wanderlust #healthy #staysafe #washyourhands #coronavirus #covid19 #Yorkshire #WestYorkshire #England #UK #IgersLeeds #LeedsPhoto #IgersUK #IgersEngland #IgersYorkshire #travel #tourism #tourist #leisure #life

#Spring has arrived at #RoundhayPark in #Leeds. Here is a #building called The #Rotunda, which is a grade II listed drinking fountain structure (the drinking fountains were around the edge of the building). It was built in 1882 but the drinking fountains no longer function. #history #fact #water #reflection #Roundhay #LeedsPhoto #IgersLeeds #nature #rural #VisitLeeds #travel #tourism #tourist #leisure #life #explore #Yorkshire #park #WestYorkshire #VisitYorkshire #England #IgersUK #IgersYorkshire #architecture #England #explore #adventure

#Spring has arrived at #RoundhayPark in #Leeds. Here is one of the park’s three #bandstands in the #sunshine above the man-made #WaterlooLake, which was completed in 1815. Bandstands were popularised in #Victorian England, as the authorities wanted people to congregate at focal points and listen to music, rather than to sit around drinking alcohol! #history #fact #water #reflection #Roundhay #LeedsPhoto #IgersLeeds #nature #rural #VisitLeeds #travel #tourism #tourist #leisure #life #explore #Yorkshire #park #WestYorkshire #VisitYorkshire #England #IgersUK #IgersYorkshire

#Spring has arrived at #RoundhayPark in #Leeds. Here are #daffodils in the #sunshine by the man made #WaterlooLake, which was completed in 1815 and built by soldiers who had returned from the Napoleonic wars and thus named after the Battle of Waterloo. #history #fact #water #reflection #Roundhay #LeedsPhoto #IgersLeeds #nature #rural #VisitLeeds #travel #tourism #tourist #leisure #life #wanderlust #explore #Yorkshire #park #WestYorkshire #VisitYorkshire #England #IgersUK #IgersYorkshire

I went for a socially distant walk at #RoundhayPark in #Leeds today. Here is the #dam at the end of the man made #WaterlooLake, which was completed in 1815 and built by soldiers who had returned from the Napoleonic wars and thus named after the Battle of Waterloo. The weir used to send water into a bathing pool, now the water leaving the lake becomes #WykeBeck. #history #fact #water #reflection #Roundhay #LeedsPhoto #IgersLeeds #nature #rural #VisitLeeds #travel #tourism #tourist #leisure #life #wanderlust #explore #Yorkshire #WestYorkshire #VisitYorkshire #England #IgersUK #IgersYorkshire

I went for a socially distant walk at #RoundhayPark in #Leeds today. Plenty of other here people did too, but the park at 2.8 square kilometres was large enough to take the numbers without fear of spreading the dreaded #Coronavirus. Here is the weir at the end of the man made #WaterlooLake, which was completed in 1815 and built by soldiers who had returned from the Napoleonic wars and thus named after the Battle of Waterloo. The weir used to send water into a bathing pool, now the water leaving the lake becomes #WykeBeck. #history #fact #water #reflection #Roundhay #LeedsPhoto #IgersLeeds #nature #rural #VisitLeeds #travel #tourism #tourist #leisure #life #wanderlust #explore #Yorkshire #WestYorkshire #VisitYorkshire #England #IgersUK #IgersYorkshire
