Leeds in 1819 - Part I: Holbeck to Briggate

Leeds in 1819 - Part I: Holbeck to Briggate


_A walk that takes you back to late Georgian Leeds_

Two hundred years ago Leeds was in the thick of the ‘industrial revolution’. Who were the influential people and what were the main events of note? How were the townspeople earning their living and what were they concerned about? What was the state of health care, education and cultural life? How did people, materials, goods, energy and ideas move around? Where was it all heading?

After the great reviews for the earlier tours on this theme, you have another chance to come and imagine yourself meeting the characters and seeing some of the places where they lived and learned, worked and worshipped, dispensed medical care, justice, credit or beer.

_Meet next to the Welcome to Yorkshire office, behind the Midnight Bell pub in the Round Foundry, Holbeck. The story continues after lunch with Part II - from the middle of town to the West End._
