Great turnout and weather for our first guided walk of the proposed Greenway

This covered Phases 1/2 of the route from Mt Pleasant Road, near St Josephs School via Lowtown, Robin Lane, Carlisle Road, passing the Greenside tunnel entrance, then via Smalewell Road/ bridleway to the western tunnel entrance , Tyersal embankment to Black Hey Farm, walking back via Leeds Country Way to Smalewell Road.

Around 25 residents from Leeds and Bradford attended and were shown the historical landmarks on the route including the sites of former Lowtown and Greenside rail stations which we are fundraising to provide Heritage interpretation boards at both sites.

The self guided route is also available on the website, greensidegreenway.org.

A local illustrator has also offered to assist with a new map /guide of the route.
