The Stone Lion - Protect Woodhouse Moor

for a cleaner Moor, a safer Moor, a better Moor

The Stone Lion

The Stone Lion

The stone lion is thought to represent Britain at the time of the French Revolutionary wars.  And the snake is thought to represent France.  The date June 1883 is carved in the base of the statue. A number of adornments were made to the park around this time, including the tree-lined avenues, the bandstand and the water fountain with clock.  Children like Les and Ken Turner used to like to play on the lion.  Ken is shown here on the right with his elder brother Les. The lion was removed by Leeds city Council a few years ago, and never returned.
