Certain people in Leeds.

Postby Reynard1965 » Thu 20 Dec, 2018 6:53 am

Hello to all members,
I'm totally new to this particular site and i'm very interested in (secret Leeds.)
I have a quick question for many of our members who may be able to help myself regarding my question of a friend who lives in Leeds, first I think he lived in Armley, nowadays I think he is living in Bramley.Does anyone know of a certain well known guy called Les Gedge? I met him at a dog show in Sheffield approx 34-35 years a go. Any anecdotes of Les would be of interest to myself and would be much appreciated.
Thank you reynard1965.

Hi Reynard, welcome to SL.
He was mentioned as still living in Bramley in 2004 in this YP article

What was his claim to fame? You might have more luck on social media , linked in etc.There are people of that name on FB connected with rough shooting ( pigeons not ruffians!).
It used to be said that the statue of the Black Prince had been placed in City Square , near the station, pointing South to tell all the southerners who've just got off the train to b****r off back down south!
