This is close to Kirkstall Abbey in Leeds, UK. Taken while the abbey was hosting an open air Shakespear event. If you look at the abbey ruins you can see the seating area and round beer tent<br><br><img src=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/images/new/080505/5991admin.jpg>

I think they paint it near the Abbey to show the people that is 850 years old.

I looked before a little bit in the net, but it only take 1 minute to find the (true?) explenation.
Typed Kirkstall and 850 in Google and there it was. With the near to the Abbey, I thought that's the correct answer.
After that I approved the file.

Name is program ;) .

Those numbers aren't painted on the pavement, its actually a flowerbed on the land owned by the Abbey's Museum. The flowerbed and is about three foot higher than street level and there is a wall seperating the pavement and the flowerbed.
