Innovation in Holbeck & Hunslet – the parts other

Details

A fascinating walking tour of the cradle of innovation south of the River Aire – about 3 miles

So many amazing things started in this part of Leeds. Come and learn about the earliest factories of the industrial period, including the one where the very first steam locomotive was made – that is the very first anywhere in the world. During the tour there will be mention of a couple of dozen of the innovators featured in our 2018 book ‘Leeds: Cradle of Innovation’ [http://cradleofinnovation.org/].  

You'll get a feel for what it was like to live and work in Leeds in the 19th century. It's time travel but with a guarantee of being back in time for tea.

Meet: City Square, by Joseph Priestley statue in front of Banyan restaurant.
