Cradle of Innovation/Dogs in the Manger

Details

Exercise your mind & your dog on this walking tour of the former industrial heartland of Leeds – about 3 miles.

Intelligent dogs on leads will want to bring their two-legged companions on walkies to learn about the history and remaking of the South Bank.

So many innovators of past and present who feature in our 2018 book _‘Leeds: Cradle of Innovation’_ [http://www.cradleofinnovation.org/] have made their mark from a base in Holbeck or Hunslet. Prick up your ears to learn about the earliest factories of the industrial period and get a feel for the scale of this area formerly dominated by heavy industry. You'll see evidence of how it's being reinvented for the 21st century and sniff out the potential for the long term. What role will Holbeck and Hunslet play in the future story of new products and processes, lifestyles and learning?

_DOGS GO FREE._

_MEET: AT GRANARY WHARF NEAR THE HOP PUB LS1 4BR - IN ONE OF THE RAILWAY ARCHES. THE WHOLE WALK WILL BE OUTDOORS. FINISH: IN A PUB. DRINKIES. (FREE WATER. OTHER DRINKS: EXTRA) _
