Volunteers picked up their shovels, clippers and litter pickers yesterday to help maintain ‘common’ land in Armley.

Armley Common Right Trust is one of the oldest charities in Leeds. Established in 1799, the community-led charity protects six public green spaces on behalf of Armley people. These are at Hilltop, Charlie Cake Park, Moor Top, Armley Moor, Far Fold and Ley Lane.

Volunteers took to Charlie Cake Park to restore the Victorian fencing off Springfield Mount to its upright position and carried out general maintenance in Charlie Cake and elsewhere.

Here’s a slideshow of photos from the day:

Whether you’re into wombling, clearing, gardening, maintenance or administration, there’s a role for you at Armley Common Right Trust. Contact
