The forgotten Bank district of Leeds

Join historian Robert Dyson for this guided walk around the Bank on the North Side of the River Aire.

Thursday 6 June 2024, 11:00 – 12:30

The walk will take you across the River Aire from  the Royal Armouries to discover the hidden treasures of the mills, Waterways, churches, railways ,the links with Quarry Hill Flats and plenty more! You will discover what lies behind the over-complicated road system!

The walk will start and finish at the front steps of The Leeds Minster. From here you can easily reach your cars or major public transport arteries – or indeed, restaurants, bars or pubs for further refreshments and socialising.

Meeting Point: Front steps of Leeds Minster

Environment:  The distance covered is moderate but you will need to be prepared for frequent stops at points of interest along the route. Whilst everyone is welcome, and every care is taken, please make sure you are fit enough to go on a 1.5hr walking tour, and one which may occasionally pass over uneven ground or means negotiating busy stretches of the city. Please wear suitable clothing and footwear – tours go ahead in most weathers unless we feel that enjoyment will be severely curtailed, or – of course – conditions are dangerous.
