Kirkstall Valley nature walk will share local stories


Enjoy a communal walk through Kirkstall Valley Nature Reserve – and forage some fruit at the same time! PAUL LONG, from the Incredible Edible Kirkstall Group, has the details…

All are welcome to join the Incredible Edible Kirkstall team for a communal walk through the Kirkstall Valley and Rodley Nature Reserve.

The walk starts at 11am on Saturday, 9 September 2017 from outside The Kirkstall Bridge Pub and follows the canal towards Rodley. The walk will last approximately five hours.

The walk is free and open to all but donations are more than welcome to help us cover costs, create communal growing spaces and provide other educational opportunities for all to enjoy.

The walk takes a slow relaxed pace to allow people to share stories, local history as well as a spot of foraging along the canal & bird watching which are pointed out along the route so don’t forget the camera & foraging basket.

The children will also have the opportunity to do some pond dipping, paper boat sailing & other activities.

For more information please contact

Dogs are not welcome in the nature reserve – sorry. Younger children are welcome to bring bikes or scooters.

The walk is wheelchair/buggy friendly.

Everyone is welcome to bring a picnic or food to share and we are happy to bring along some herbal tea, lavender scones and other foraged treats.
