Description

Welcome to our NEW FORMAT SUPPER WALKS!

Once again Leeds Civic Trust is running its popular series of early evening supper walks, each themed around a particular period in Leeds' history and architecture, but this year with a new format: food will now be served prior to the walk, to make it possible for people coming straight from work to be able to join us without having to go home first.


WATERFRONT EAST

Beginning at the Calls, and taking as its spine the Aire and Aire & Calder Navigation, and going beyond Crown Point Bridge and the Armouries and Leeds Dock, we will tell the story of this important shipping intersection and the historical importance of Hunslet and its surroundings as a focus for trade and business. Today the area is the home of five educational establishments, the site of a sustainable pre-fabricated housing scheme (CITU’s Climate Innovation District), location of a new city centre park, and a focus for the digital economy – the largest outside of London. A fascinating area that has continued to innovate over the centuries.


The Trust will open its doors to 'walkers' from 5.45pm onwards. Food will be served from 6pm onwards (buffet style supper with wine, beer and soft drinks). Our bookshop will be open during this time to give you an opportunity to browse and make purchases.

The walk will start at 6.45pm and last approximately 1.5 hours. The distance covered is moderate but you will need to be prepared for frequent stops at points of interest along the route.

The walk will take you back to the Tetley Brewery Wharf / Wharf Street area.

Please note: The Trust premises will be closed when you return from the walk, so please make sure you take all your belongings and shop purchases with you when you set off for the walk.
