Evening Walk - Bramley and Rodley River and Canal Loop

2018-04-18 19:30:00 2018-04-18 21:30:00 Europe/London Evening Walk - Bramley and Rodley River and Canal Loop

This is an urban walk by virtue of its location in Leeds but it has a distinctly rural feel.

We start on the edge of Bramley outside the Rock Inn, where we have permission to use the car park.

We will take a footpath past the Fallwood marina to the Leeds-Liverpool canal and the meandering river Aire, both of which which we will cross. 

We will then head west towards Calverley through lush green fields and then along a pleasant river bank.

Just beyond the by-pass road bridge, we will cross the river via a foot bridge and then return along the canal towpath, with Rodley Nature Reserve on our left. 

An uphill stride along Pollard Lane next to the Fall Woods takes us back to Bramley where I hope you will join me for a post-hike drink at The Rock Inn.

Walking boots and a head torch are strongly recommended.
