The platform at the top of the tower. There is no way up this high inside the tower any more, so once the scaffolding comes down, it might be a long long time before anyone can be where we were stood.

The tower itself, as close as anyone is going to get to it for a long time.

Secret rooftop gardens! How nice would it be to sit up here in the sun with a drink & a book, looking down on the city, & knowing that the city doesn't know you are there!?!

Do you have any memories of experiences of Holy Trinity Church? Did any of you out there ever get married to a chimpanzee trainer there? Let us know here if you did!

Holy Trinity Church hosts cutting edge art exhibitions, & is a venue for some of the best alternative gigs in this city (Micah P Hinson earlier this year - fantastic). For details of everything going on there, see www.artsattrinity.co.uk.

Treasures Revealed is going on across Leeds for the rest of this week and this coming weekend. For more details see www.treasuresrevealed.co.uk.

The photographs in this feature that look more colourful & professional than my usual stuff are by Mark Tullett of Reflex Pictures - www.reflexpictures.com. Thanks very much to Mark for overcoming his fear of heights for your sake. Please credit him if you want to use any of these pictures.

Thanks very much to Maeve at Holy Trinity & Gemma Bonham for getting us access to these places.

If you have any suggestions for buildings you would like to see covered by a Highly Irregular Feature, or if you have access to a building & would like to get us in, please contact the Secret Leeds Team at munki72@gmail.com.

Look out for the next feature soon!

Happy hunting,

The Secret Leeds Team.

I was wondering why the world seemed so woefully uninterested in pictures of Holy Trinity Church... After two months I have just noticed that I had set the access rights wrong so only registered users could look at it!

So, re-introducing our Highly Irregular Feature for May/July 2007 - Holy Trinity Church!
