Could you help make the footpaths below Official Routes?

Greenside Greenway community group are in the process of submitting claims to make two sections of the disused railway line which have been used by residents for nearly 50 years into official Public Rights of Way. By doing this will help give protection against any other building developments on the proposed Greenway route. The sections are

  1. Tyersal Embankment
    16 acres of land (between the bridleway down from the Fox and Grapes public house to Black Hey Farm ). This land is currently owned by Ogden Group.

  2. Lowtown to Mt Pleasant Road
    This section of disused rail track passes Paul’s pond (old Mill private fishing pond). The land is accessed by the side of Henry Kranks shop on Lowtown, this land may have a number of owners.

    If you have walked / cycled / horse riden any of the above routes we are keen to obtain evidence statements which will be submitted to Leeds City Council Public Rights of Way section, who will process the PROW (Public Right of Way) claims.

    If you can assist, please send an email to greensidegreenway@gmail.com

    or send details via private messenger or contact any Committee member, we just need your contact details.


    Please indicate which of the two footpath claims (1 or 2 ) you can help with. We will then post the user evidence form to you with a SAE to return to us.

Many thanks.
