Pioneering city centre sculpture leaves lasting legacy in its footsteps

An eye-catching Leeds sculpture is walking away after six years on City Square, leaving behind a lasting public art legacy.

Legs Walking has been a feature on the square ever since it was kindly loaned to the city by a private collector in 2018.

The owner, who wishes to remain anonymous, has now asked for it to be returned, which will see the colourful sculpture carefully removed from beside the Mill Hill Chapel this week. The sculpture will remain on public display in a yet-to-be-announced new location in Yorkshire.
