THE BOROUGH OF LEEDS 1207-2007:
800 years of Development and Change

This Exhibition was organised by the Thoresby Society as part of Celebrate Leeds. It tells, in maps and pictures, the story of the development of Leeds from a medieval borough to a great 19th and 21st century city.

The exhibition takes key dates in that development and shows what the borough looked like at those dates and explains the changes that have taken place, particularly in Briggate and the central area where the original medieval borough was created in 1207.

The photographs are from the opening of the exhibition at the Leeds City Library in June 2007

Since then the exhibition has also been on display at the Leeds Lights and the Leeds Parish Church.
