liits wroteColonJim's right but it wasn't always the case. The Leeds Insurance maps [1901] show the property numbers and the properties on Bridge end start odd on the left as you cross N-S and even on the right. At the time, number 18 was along the riverside as indicated by the red arrow.
I would guess that when referring to the Strangers Guide to Leeds, you'd have to know which particular year they were talking about to discover where number 18 was as the property numbers change and move like you wouldn't believe [and this has been discussed at length in another thread].
I'd hazard a guess [and it is only that] that it was at the corner of Bridge End where number 12 is on the Insurance Map.

The North Bar stone was in position last time I was in that area of town (Feb half term)

Well, the old no. 18 is still there, albeit substantially altered at ground floor level:

Leodis suggests it was still no. 18 in 1982:

It does seem a funny place for the bar stone. For one thing, as others have said, it's off the main road. For another, I'd have expected it to be at the other end of the bridge...

There appears to be some sort of plaque on the end of the bridge closest to no. 18. What's that then?

Hi Mark :).

I took this photo of that plaque today (Dec 2 2015). Sadly it has nothing to do with an old Bar Stone.

The "North Bar" still exists next to the old bus station building on Vicar Lane.

To mark1978,

I was just wondering if I could use you photograph of the John Cossins Map, 1725, that you posted online? I'm currently writing a thesis on architecture in Ireland and I have a map that has a similar layout to the Cossins map, so I want to be able to put an image in for comparison reasons. I would be sure to cite the photograph as yours. It's just that I'm finding it impossible to get a good image of the Leeds map and when I googled it, this page came up.

It's not a problem if you'd rather not, just thought I'd chance my arm. Please let me know what you think.

I found it myself through a Google image search (or similar - can't remember exactly), so no objection at all from my side! No need to credit me, although a plug for the forum always goes down well :)
