What’s out there south of the River Aire? Join a walk to explore an area in transition - with a guide who's been involved in shaping the area

The tiny hamlets of Holbeck and Hunslet became the cradle of industrial development from the late eighteenth century. Foundries, mills, printworks, and housing crowded the whole of the area south of the river, changing the landscape out of all recognition.*

After many years of evolution and prosperity, de-industrialisation set in, leaving deserted sites and buildings. Some of these have been put to new purposes since the late 1980s but much potential remains. Come and see a work in progress and hear some of the stories about how the transformations have been achieved. What is still around the corner?

We’ll stay quite close to the waterfront.

*This story is told in ‘Innovation in Holbeck & Hunslet – the parts other tours don’t reach’ – see tour on 10th March.
