With 100m rise in sea level, most of Leeds would be under water. I can only assume that the dot on the map shows "what remains of Leeds". Most of Armley for instance would be drowned, leaving Hilltop as an island - Whingate Junction at 303' would certainly disappear.

When I was a kid, a long, long time ago, Bridlington was known as Leeds by the Sea and Morecambe Bradford by the Sea. Looks like it could be coming true!

Not that it is likely to be my problem come 2100, but having checked my elevation here in SE Bradford, my house is over 600 ft above current sea level. Mebbe Bradford has some advantages over Leeds after all. Mind you, there'll probably be a Government land grab well before then to house all the bankers and stockbrokers from the Thames Ocean.

Drat, I thought we would be alright on the ridge at Armley/Whingate. Might have to get some wellies then.

Not sure why my post has been credited to Geordie Exile. What did I do wrong there then?
