I had a chat with the same helpful young man that I did a couple of days back and he said he removed the cladding after I spoke to him then and was very interested in what he found. Demolition work is still ongoing inside the premises.    


Hi Leodian, bearing the above in mind, do we have you to thank for the stone being unveiled? if so, well done and thank you! You might have saved it from a possible unfortunate fate by bringing it to the helpful chap's attention.

Thanks barnie. Regular Smiley

I hope that there were already plans in place to be sure it was not demolished. Perhaps though my chat resulted in the exposure of the North Bar stone earlier than expected, but at least it is now definitely known to be there.

Well here is a chance for Secret Leeds to contact the Yorkshire Evening Post etc. to suggest a campaign to get it shifted into Leeds Museum before it gets damaged or defaced.
It would also serve as a way to mention the new site<LOL>.


Surely it's better of being preserved and then put back in situ once the work has been completed much in the same way that the Burly Bar Stone has?


Hi LS1. Regular Smiley

To the best of my knowledge the Burley Bar Stone is kept at the Leeds Building Society on The Headrow. Apart from the North Bar Stone the only other one that I know of that is still in existence (I would love to be wrong on that) is the East Bar one at Leeds Minster (Leeds Parish Church that was!).


As close to in situ as poss! Burley Bar Stone is in really poor condition. Best that it kept away from the elements.

I've been in touch with West Yorkshire Archaeology and they have arrangements made to store the North Bar stone and then have it reinstalled later.

on the subject of the pawdmire stone and the greystone ive found out a bit more on them. The pawdmire stone was sunk beneath the pavement somewhere near call lane /duncan st and that area used to flood a lot and was the celebrated spawning ground of toads .
As for the greystone ive read many accounts of it being referred to and not once was it mentioned to as being near st peters im sure that info is wrong.

Number 18 must be somewhere between Wine & Co and Windsor House. Wine and Co being number 20-22 and then next door Martin & Co is 24-32. That's moving away from the bridge. Moving towards Birggate after Wine and Co is the bridge then Windsor House so 18 must be in that area, though not sure on which side of the bridge it actually is/ was?
