Canal walk between Kirkstall and Armley highlights winter wonderland yarn bombing


West Leeds residents are invited to a ‘woolly winter walk’ along a section of the Leeds and Liverpool canal from Kirkstall Forge to Leeds Industrial Museum.

Along the route, walkers will find around 500 vouchers for random acts of kindness.

After a short walk to Kirkstall Brewery Bridge, these vouchers can then be exchanged for a handmade knitted or crocheted festive tree decoration. Attendees will also be joined by carol singers.

Along the way, people are being encouraged to stop by Kirkstall Locks to visit the wonderful winter wonderland yarn bombing created by Kirkstall-based Hookers and Clickers charity group.

The event, organised by the Canal & Rivers Trust, runs between 11am-2pm on Saturday, 11 December.

People are being encouraged to walk in their own time and at their own pace.
