Talking Histories: Kirkstall Valley – Wellington B

Talking Histories: Kirkstall Valley – Wellington B


Join us for a walking tour along a stretch of the valley of the River Aire that was once full of foundries, dyeworks, mills, tanneries and back-to-back housing. Here, the 19th-century expansion of Leeds was carried beyond its historic core.

Expert guide Rachael Unsworth from Leeds City Walking Tours will invite you to envisage the area’s colourful past and find out about transformations since Leeds’ industrial heyday.

The walk will begin and end at Left Bank Leeds.
