Leeds: the new Bayeux

The Leeds Millennium tapestry has gone on public view for the first time at Harewood House. The University helped to sponsor, and features in, four of the fifteen panels: civic pride featuring the range of voluntary groups, businesses, schools and organisations in the city; pins and needles looking at the history of the textile industry on which Leeds' wealth was built (detail left); a picture of health offering a vision of a healthy city supporting the well-being of all its citizens; and lifelong learning looking at the diversity of educational provision in the city.

The Leeds Millennium tapestry, conceived and directed by Leeds artist Kate Russell, has taken ten years to complete and involved over 2,000 volunteers. It remains at Harewood House until July 14.
