Kirkleatham Museum and grounds

Fountain of dreams!

Building of dreams!

Doors of dreams!



I love Leeds; there’s so much history there, and so many ridiculously grand buildings. I spent a good amount of time wandering around looking upwards, which wasn’t a bad thing when I had time to kill before seeing the amazing Bristol Old Vic/National Theatre production of Jane Eyre at the Leeds Grand Theatre (omg, so. many. heart. eyes. emojis.!! 😍)

Here’s some of the buildings which caught my eye (and just look at that gorgeous blue sky!):

And here’s one cute modern one which I also rather liked:

It turns out that Snapseed makes some pretty realistic Victorian-looking photos with its ‘grunge’ filter. Wandering around the surprisingly tranquil gardens ofΒ Kirkleatham Museum felt a bit like going back in time anyway, so when I found the filter later on, I was quite geekily excited 😳 Plus, trees and paths have been the same for hundreds of years, so there was nothing very modern in the photos which would look incongruous if I was going for a Victorian look.

I’ll be doing a post aboutΒ Kirkleatham Museum (well, the building anyway) soon, once I’ve finished doing my research. In the meantime, here are my photos…
