2019-09-01 09:15:00 2019-09-01 16:45:00 Europe/London East End Park to St Aidans Nature Reserve and back

This is a circular walk of approximately 13-14 miles from East End Park (LS9). There are no hills and the paths are mostly easy.

From the park our route goes to Temple Newsam where we will stop for a break/drink (there are toilets there too). Then we head to Hollingthorpe and Swillington and we will have a lunch stop at St Aidans Nature Reserve (please bring a packed lunch). We then join the canal towpath which we follow all the way to Cross Green then back to the starting point.

Meeting Point: Gates at entrance to East End Park, at the corner where the Ivy Street meets East Park Parade. Post code for the approximate area is LS9 9DH.

Parking: There is free on-street parking on the main road and surrounding streets.

No toilets at the meeting point and no cafe/pub at the end this time.
