That makes 12 in total + 3 FP.

Hi Kamil :).

Good luck in your quest to record them but I suspect that there will be far more than you might have thought! It will be an interesting historical record, particularly if you take photos of them. There is a FH sign at the Prince of Wales at the junction of Mill Hill and Swinegate that it quite close to where your station one is located.

Surely the fire brigade /council will know where all the hydrants are. Once you have a list you can just go round photoing them all? There must be hundreds in Leeds if not thousands in the Leeds MD as a whole.

I don't think that there are that many FH plates. I was thinking to contact with fire brigades. I've been looking for some kind of Fire Hydrants locations map in internet, but there is any.
Most fire hydrants in Leeds are indicated with plastic sign, black H on the yellow background. To make sure that I'm not gonna miss any I'm locating them as well. I've found on internet that minimum distance between fire hydrants in town center is 90m, commercial 100m and residential 200m. Additionally, I think that places where the are no fire hydrants available, are "guarded in case of fire" by Dry Risers. located less them a 1m above the ground. I have to make sure of that.

But i did found different plate. Looks similar in style as FH. FOAM INLET DIESEL TANK.

Unfortunately plate from South Parade disappeared with the street name plate. I hope someone just renovate it, clean it, and will put it back.

Just quick update. Most of them I've cached two weeks ago. Since then nothing new so here it is, list of 42 plates. I'm still working on the photos. Some are very high up and I think I need a better camera to make them better, high quality.
