A place known in Leeds, but also goes for any area that had the same circumstances.
Usually a certain area, maybe an estate, but not usually a street which contains the majority of old people. Another common factor, and most certainly of the one in Leeds, is the area is full of bungalows, also associated with older people. The name comes from 'angel' as in meaning 'dead', and 'island' as in meaning the 'area'.
