Shutterspots No. 1: Clarence Dock, Leeds

[rl_gallery id=”11048″]

Clarence Dock sits on the River Aire, just to the South East of Leeds City Centre. The dock was constructed for boats using the Leeds and Liverpool Canal and the Aire and Calder Navigation to ship goods and commodities from Leeds city centre in 1843.  In 1996 the construction of the purpose-built Royal Armouries Museum marked the start of the area’s redevelopment.  The area now houses many tech businesses, hotels, restaurants and bars.
