I took this photo showing the North Bar Stone on September 6 2016. It's sad to see it in its current state. It makes me wonder if it might soon get covered over again?

According to a report on page 19 of the Yorkshire Evening Post today (October 25 2017) a blue plaque is to be unveiled on Monday (so October 30 2017) at the North Bar stone on "the old bus station" which is on Vicar Lane but the report does not mention that.

I had a look at the North Bar stone to day 20/10 2017 i must say it looks in a sorry state you would think they could put a frame with toughened glass over it for protection. They could have done this at the at the same time as putting up the plaque this would have given people something to see without more erosion taking place.

This is a photo showing the North Bar Stone that I photographed on October 26 2017. Comparing it to that which I took on September 6 2016 (posted on Sept 7 2016) the only obvious change is on the left where I see you can have a 'Back, Neck frozen & Shoulder 30mins £35' and a 'Traditional Thai massage 60mins £45'. ;)

How i see it is you only have to have some no brainer with a warped mind and a hammer and the stone will be passed restoration it needs some protection We have lost enough history in the name of progress in Leeds over the passed thirty years or so its about time we looked after what little we have left. :oops: :oops: :oops:

These are 2 photos that I took today (Oct 31 2017). The first shows the North Bar blue plaque location and the second is a zoomed-in view of the blue plaque.
