Kirkstall Abbey

Abbey Walk, Kirkstall, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS5 3EH

Would you like a deep, restful experience to restore your inner peace?

Would you like to deepen your appreciation of Kirkstall Abbey and Park?

If the answer is yes, then please join Clare Wigzell for a poetry reading and meditation walk on Thursday, March 14th at 1.00-2.30 approx at Kirkstall Abbey park.

We will meet at the war memorial at the Kirkstall Road junction.

The poem will be read in sections, thenyou will be led on a walk on the journey covered by that part of the poem. The walk will be in silence to enable you to have your own experiences of the place.

There will be time for you to take in your surroundings, respond to ideas and images from the poem and create your own.

There are three sections:  the first covers the path to the abbey, the second takes you round the abbey ruin and the last one is by the river.

Copies of the poem will be available on the day for a small charge.  The poem is not difficult to follow or understand, and is written to be enjoyed by all.

Stout clothing and shoes, including wet weather gear are essential. We will go ahead outside unless there is a severe weather warning for Leeds that day. In this situation we will use a room in the visitors’ centre.

Part of Kirkstall Abbey's Wellbeing Week
