Geography: Leeds

Key points of interest in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. Historically a part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, Leeds can trace its recorded history to the Early Middle Ages when the Romano-British Kingdom of Elmet was covered by the forest of ‘Loidis’, the origin of the name Leeds (“Leeds”, [s.d.]). Alfred Austin (30 May 1835 – 2 June 1913), Poet Laureate from 1896 until his death in the second decade of the following century, was born in Headingley, near Leeds, on 30 May 1835. His father, Joseph Austin, was a merchant in Leeds. In “To England” he disfavourably comments on the nation of his birth, lamenting the fact that there, unlike in foreign climes, he will find “No soft foam fawning upon smiling strand, / No scent of orange-groves, no zephyrs bland” (“Alfred Austin”. [s.d.]). Enjoy this puzzle?
