description

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

*Everyone needs to bring a torch as it will be very dark*

This is a 4 mile walk from Kirkstall Abbey Museum. From the Abbey we head to the canal and follow the towpath to Newlay on the edge of Horsforth. We leave the canal, cross over the river and then walk along a woodland path before following the main road for a mile back to the start.

We must keep to the side of the towpath to allow other walkers, runners and cyclists to pass safely.

We will meet outside the Abbey House Museum building which is on the A65 (Kirkstall Road) opposite Kirkstall Abbey. If driving, you can park in the free public car park on Abbey Walk/Vesper Lane which is near the museum, or use surrounding streets. There is no lighting in the car park. The post code for the abbey is LS5 3EH. There is a bus stop very close to the meeting point.

If you’re a Ramblers member please bring along your membership card (or download the Ramblers App to get your digital membership card) if possible as the walk leader will be trialling the Ramblers App walk register tool which scans the QR code on your card.

This walk is ok for dogs on leads.

Walking boots are not essential for this walk.
