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 WEST

Staying close to the river and canal basin and finishing in Holbeck, this walk shows how this area has had a vital role in shaping the city over the last 200 years, and how future developments will radically alter this part of Leeds once again. You will see the location of the first moving image, visit the cradle of the industrial revolution as championed by Marshall and Smeaton, not to mention an Egyptian Temple and Italian Towers (and the largest bungalow in the world!) You will hear about how the area will change once again, with proposals for new skyscrapers, large scale demolitions to make way for HS2 and hear about the £0.5 billion city station redevelopment. A truly fascinating walk.


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 finish in the Granary Wharf area. Please plan your journey / transport accordingly.

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.
