Brighton Place

This view from Market Street into "the Knab", as it was originally known, is one of the nicest in the City. The variation in styles and rooflines and the fortuitously sited cupola of the Leeds Permanent building on North Street all come together in a pleasing composition. The view was only slightly marred, when this photo was taken in July 2007,  by the construction work going on in the middle distance.

Sadly, in 2010, the construction work is still not finished, the blockwork lacks its cladding or rendering, the shops are unoccupied and part of the frontage is unattractively boarded up as shown in the photo below:-
