Leisurely Canal Walk

  • Apr 26, 2014 · 1:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Meeting outside The Leeds Visitors Centre & inside Leeds Railway Station (opposite McDonalds). Leisurely walk along the canal to Kirkstall Bridge Inn.
Stop for a drink/bite to eat and then walk back to Leeds Railway Station.
This is a distance of approx. 3.5 miles each way.
(I have never done this walk but I hope Michael will be there to assist!)
I am limiting the number of RSVPs, so please only RSVP if you can make it.
P.S This event may be postponed if the weather turns out to be bad on the day! Thanks :-)

    Thanks everyone - this was a great day out & the sun was out practically all of the walk. Some of us were lazy & got the bus back (I ofcourse had to go with the majority!) Hope u enjoyed your jog back Julio! :-)

    Was a really nice day and a great 1st meetup for me. Nice to see someone got a photo of the odd circular rainbow. Looking forward to another event. Best wishes.

    This the best industrial archaeology walk I have ever been on. Good company and a Victorian pub made me very happy.

      Or perhaps I could provide a wheelbarrow with which I could push you along. Whichever way you decide is fine with me :)

      ha ha good idea but i request the waterproof equipment on that wheelbarrow!!! lol

  • Su

    Hi - this walk is still going ahead - rain or no rain! Weather forecast (if we are to believe it!) predicts the rain to stop around 12. The walk there should take about an hour so a little rain won't put me off! Bring your umbrellas! :-)

    April 26, 2014

  • Valerie

    Good luck for this Su.
    Hope the weather stays good for you. I tried to do the same walk in reverse on Easter Monday but was turned back partway by a policeman on the towpath because of the big fire in Armley

    April 26, 2014

    • Su

      Thanks Valerie! Hopefully, all we have to worry about is the weather! :-)

    I'm new - will people still be meeting if the weather is a bit rubbish?

    April 25, 2014

    • Su

      Yes - join us if you want to brave the weather! :-)

      April 25, 2014

    • Chris O.

      Erika, the weather is always a bit rubbish in England, so we are never able to tell the difference either way! :o)

      2 · April 25, 2014

  • Manhar

    Let me tell you it often rains in England that's why its green and beautiful so ensure a little rain's not going to stop you going out and having fun, haha :)

    • Manhar

      Haha... no dancing too near the canal though!!! Specially Michael, I know he loves to dance :))

      2 · April 25, 2014

  • Su

    Hi all - yes the weather is rubbish but I hope some people will still brave the walk with me! Bring your waterproofs, umbrellas, (skateboards & wheel barrows!!) I will email you my contact details. Getting wet is part of the fun...although I might change my mind tomorrow! If you don't want to brave the weather please change your RSVP. Thanks. :-)

    • leticia

      ok dont worry, i hope came back walking

      April 25, 2014

    • Su

      Oh - I will probably walk back but if some people didn't want to there is an option to take a bus back.:-)

      April 25, 2014

  • Su

    Forecast for Saturday is a bit of rain but am hoping this will change! If you cannot make the walk please make ensure you change your RSVP, this will enable someone else to attend (or else you will be listed as a "no show"!).
    Thanks. Hoping for a little sunshine on Saturday! :-)

    I did rsvp for this meetup, but, realised I've another meetup at 1:30pm, such a shame it clashes with my bowling, Su. I love the quiescence canal walks, but, I'll have to pull out, darn!

    April 18, 2014

    • Su

      Hi - I will hopefully be putting more canal walks on soon - especially when the weather is better, so hopefully you'll be able to make one of them. :-)

  • sasi

    Hi- am I ok bringing 2 guests along :) ?

    April 15, 2014

    • Su

      Hi - sorry no guests this time. Numbers are limited. :-)

      2 · April 15, 2014

    • Manhar

      Hi sasi we have a large membership and an event with limited numbers, so this event has to be members only, otherwise we would get a backlash from faithful members. Anyway coming on your own means you get to know new people so its an advantage!!
