County Arcade, Leeds

As well as photos of the Light Night Leeds event, I took the opportunity while in Leeds to get a few night shots of some of the interesting architecture in the city centre. This shot shows County Arcade.

The County Arcade was built between 1898 and 1904, designed by the theatre architect Frank Matcham. It was notable for glazed barrel roofing decorated with copious amounts of faience from the Burmantofts Pottery, a number of mosaics and plentiful use of marble. Matcham's development also included the Cross Arcade and the Empire Theatre and all three constructions were in the same style.
