This picture shows a more detailed photo of the City of Leeds coat of arms built into a wall at Seacroft Hospital.
Yesterday I posted a photo of the coat of arms and its surroundings. Today this detail in the stonework has rather weathered and there is some greening due to some form of algae.
I may be wrong but I suspect that this stonework dates from the construction of Seacroft hospital at the beginning of the 19th Century. This version of the coat of arms is quite old because the modern one has a helmet built into the design.
