LCA Walk around Woodlesford and Methely
November 18 @ 10:30 - 14:30
An easy 5 mile circular based on Woodlesford railway station(LS26 8RA), commencing at 11.30 a.m. The Castleford/Knottingley line train leaves Leeds (usually Platform 17) at 11.16 and reaches Woodlesford at 11.25. There is a good station car park (strictly speaking for rail users, though it’s unlikely to be a problem on a Sunday) and nearby street parking. The walk goes past Woodlesford church to the southern canal towpath and along to Methley, crossing the river for a brief incursion into St Aidan’s RSPB reserve for a picnic stop, and returning to Woodlesford via Fleet Lane.
Hot and cold drinks can be obtained from the Two Pointers pub, 5 minutes walk from the station. Unfortunately the pub does not currently serve food.
Trains back to Leeds are hourly at 10 to the hour. Bring suitable walking gear, water and a picnic lunch. Exactly one week after the centenary of the World War 1 armistice, an appropriate theme for poems/songs etc would be the End of War.
