About us:

Hollybush is a Conservation Centre in Kirkstall that has been working with the local community for over 40 years to offer volunteering opportunities and adult learning.

The site has its own community café, serving drinks and cakes and hot & cold food (all vegetarian & vegan).

How to find us:

Hollybush is a former farmhouse located on Broad Lane in Kirkstall, at the junction with Bridge Road (B6157). Please consider the environmental impact of your visit to Hollybush and walk, cycle or use public transport if possible. Bike storage is available, but please bring your own lock!

We are a two-minute walk from bus stops at the Bridge Shopping Centre (numbers 91 and 49) and Kirkstall Morrisons/Kirkstall Road (numbers 33,34,35 and 508). We are a ten-minute walk from Headingley Train Station.

We have limited parking on site reserved for blue badge holders and those with limited mobility. Other visitors travelling by car have the kind permission of Morrison’s to park at the far end of their carpark, a short walk from Hollybush. There is also a very small public carpark off Whyther Lane, by the canal.
