Between Canal Road,Armley and I think it's called Oddy Lock,there
is a Leeds secret that has bugged me for years.It was obviously a large industrial complex many years ago now almost completely overgrown.I'll try sending some photos,but I don't usually have much luck with that kind of thing...

You mean the place with the smugglers type tunnels down to the river?
A fool spends his entire life digging a hole for himself.

I think that was part of Wilson & Mathiesons Foundry, Armley Bridge Works. The structures might be these from the 1890 OS Map. They used to deliver coal by barge and I think that these would be the storage areas.
