Mural

The English Fisheries chip shop on the edge of the park has really gone big in bringing the nations favourite dish to life. On the side of the building is a multi-coloured mural that brings the memories of the seaside to mind. You can taste the salt and vinegar just looking at it!

Like lots of the inner city urban areas of Leeds, Armley as a result of the industrial revolution. Armley Moor common is a by product of this industrial advancement. In a world that became more privatised the common – check the stone inscription at the entrance – was a space the workers of Armley were given rights to. It added a bit of light relief from the back breaking labour of mill working.
