LCA Walk Headingley & Meanwood.
April 1 @ 12:00 - 15:30
Join Rob on Thursday 1st April for a 5.5 mile circular from Meanwood Park via Woodhouse Ridge, Meanwood Valley Farm and the site of the former Meanwood Park Hospital. Meet at 12 noon in Meanwood Park near the café (LS6 4LE, the internet tells me). There is a free car park almost adjacent to the café but the park has been very busy during lockdown and this car park is almost always full during the day. There can be parking in the roads leading to the park but it may take a while to find a space, which is fine if you come early enough to spend time looking for one. If you plan to arrive last minute it would be a better bet to park on the road on the other side of the park (Hollin Drive, LS16 5NE). This is just 2 minutes’ walk across the park to the rendezvous at the cafe. For those travelling on public transport the bus 51/52 from Albion Street; 51 goes nearer to the park. The cafe in the park is excellent and has been offering take-away hot drinks and light refreshments throughout the latest lockdown. I suggest we stop there at the end of the walk. Unfortunately, there are no public toilets available at the café or in the park during the current restrictions. I believe nearby Waitrose (a bit more than 5 mins walk away) has some. Some paths may be muddy but are on the whole well maintained. Wear suitable gear and bring a packed lunch. The theme for poetry/song will be “Something humorous” (it’s 1st April). Please pre-book your place by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org as numbers are still restricted. Contact Rob for further information on 0113 2164492 / 07421043614.
