What is this place in County of York on UK War Office Marriage Record?


I am indexing an image on FamilySearch for UK War Office Registers, Soldier Records, 1772-1935. This text in this image is the place of a marriage that took place on Dec, 11, 1825.

I can make out the bottom text, which says 'County of York' but I can't quite make out the top text. I can tell it starts with 'L' and possibly has 'the' at the end.

As has already been said, its "Leeds in the County of York"

In case you're not familiar with the UK, Leeds is a large city in West Yorkshire.
