description

The maximum number of people on this walk will be 10, including the walk leader.

This a short walk from Calverley on a Friday afternoon. The route is mainly on footpaths through woodland. There is 1 low stile to cross and a gate or two.

Meet in Victoria Park next to the War Memorial, which is near the main entrance to the park (on the main road).

We head out of the park to the top of Calverley Cutting which takes us quite sharply downhill to the canal on a broad footpath through lovely woodland. After having a quick look at the canal from a bridge above it, we retrace our steps slightly and then walk along a winding path through the woods and back up to the main road. We will then head back to the starting point via a few quiet streets.

The meeting point is on the 60 bus route.

Parking on the main road is strongly discouraged as it's deceptively narrow and wing mirrors often seem to be damaged by passing cars. The best place to park is Victoria Street which is a 5 minute walk from the meeting point. It's a residential street which runs along the back of Victoria Park.

Please note post code is approximate.

This walk is ok for dogs.
