Take a walk along Armley Park Road and follow our bat trail!

As part of Mammal Week, we have been raising awareness of one of our favourite animal neighbours in the railway corridor ... bats!

We have at least five types of bats in the local area and they use the trees in the railway cutting as a foraging route.

We've teamed up with Extinction Rebellion to create a bat trail on the green fence along the length of Armley Park Road.

This free family activity includes lots of bat facts and bats of all shapes and sizes. Look out for a Harry Potter bat, skeleton bats, an upside down bat and many more.

The trail is growing every day as more local people have been getting crafty and making their own bats to add to it.

We're hoping the bat trail will draw attention to imminent plans by Network Rail to fell a considerable number of trees in the railway cutting next to Armley Park Road, Armley Park and Farnell. Find out more about the Armley Trees campaign.

Get out there on Hallowe’en or in the coming weeks to find out more about bats!
