A gentle walk to start the new year - Leeds to Kirkstall

2020-01-04 10:15:00 2020-01-04 :00 Europe/London A gentle walk to start the new year - Leeds to Kirkstall

A straightforward linear walk of about 7 miles, from Leeds city centre to Kirkstall via Newlay and Hawksworth. Much of the walk will be along the canal, followed by woodland and a bit of pavement walking.

The walk will finish at the Vesper Gate pub opposite Kirkstall Abbey.

Meet at 10am in Leeds City Centre by the canal outside The Hop in Granary Wharf, to start the walk at 10.15.

Bring snacks and water to keep you hydrated. There will not be a lunch break on the walk. You could bring a packed lunch to eat afterwards in the grounds of Kirkstall Abbey. Alternatively, the Vesper Gate serves food and there is also a cafe next to the Abbey Museum close by.

If you need to get back to the city centre after the walk, buses stop near the pub and Kirkstall train station is nearby. Or you might choose to walk back…

The walk leader will be parking at Kirkstall train station in the morning and getting the train into Leeds for the start of the walk.
