Leeds active station From Ted's 2010 viewpoint. Street lamp seen on some earlier photos seems to have gone.

It is there and visible from about 200m up (higher elevation) the road past the Texaco garage. It most definitely was not there on our last visit - perhaps its was down for a service? Viewing angles are all important.

Log #37. (154m). By Bus 91. Short walk up Thorpe Rd to gain enough altitude to take a photo. Sited myself for photos roughly where ted took his Apr 2006 photos. Nothing to write home about on this one. No views and can,t reach site. Therefore low score.

Still an empty building. Drive past and head uphill for best view of station. We parked in a parking area just after the zebra crossing. Tripod still has all three legs.

Revisit. Still on the roof of the former OS offices, visible from the rear of the garage premises across the road. The original cone has been replaced by a dome. OS have moved to Leigh House, just down the road on Varley St.

Leeds Active Station detail - the tripod support appears to have lost a leg.

The building looks totally empty today. The mushroom aerial is easily visible from the road, get on the other side of the road from the building and walk uphill to just beyond the zebra crossing to see the trig.

I took the advice of previous visitors and went down Thorpe Road to ascertain that the station is still there. No other evidence of OS on building.

The building is currnetly almost empty (all three floors to let) so suspect OS have moved out. Not listed as occupants (not on notice board - see photos). Coould see nothing on roof sky-line other than security cameras so suspect no longer an active station.

Difficult but possible to get far-enough-away to see it... smack on the middle roof of the building.

The active station is still on the roof but some way back from the edge. I don't think its visible from the main road. Best seen from Thorpe Road, level with the rear of the garage. The current status can be checked at gps.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/active.asp

Please correct me if I'm wrong but based on ted's photos it looks as if this one is no longer with us. There are quite a few security cameras on the roof but nothing else obvious. The building appears to be empty and the office suites are to let. Sedco Security seem to be looking after the building. Have the OS gone elsewhere or closed in Leeds?? Please see my photos and see what you think.
