Would you like to share in a Pilgrimage round Leeds, walking the Leeds Country Way, in sections each month for a year?
Join the Leeds Church Institute to walk, reflect and pray for Leeds – for justice for its people and the environment.
The first pilgrimage will be on Wednesday 21 September, followed by Wednesday 19 October and Wednesday 23 November.
The pilgrimage starts at 11am and involves a four mile walk and a time to reflect together. Expected end time is about 2pm. Each start and finish will be accessible on public transport. (Full details below).
We'll gather for our opening reflection on the top edge of Hungerhill Woods (11am). This is the highest point on the Leeds Country Way, with panoramic views across Leeds, so a good place to both start and finish our year-long pilgrimage.
If you'd like to be part of the pilgrimage, please let LCI know events [at] leedschurchinstitute.org (here) or phone 0113 345 7928.
The 97 (Guiseley Morrisons) bus goes right past the front of Leeds Trinity University. The best bus for an 11am start (at Hungerhill Woods) leaves Leeds City bus station at 10.13am (Albion St at 10.19am, the Arndale Centre Headingley at 10.31am). It should get to Leeds Trinity University at around 10.45am.
We'll set off from Hungerhill Woods at 11.15am arriving at Golden Acre Park at around 1pm. The X84 Bus from Golden Acre Park into Leeds runs every 20 minutes during the day at 13, 33 and 53 minutes past the hour. The 1.53pm bus gets into Leeds City bus station at 2.25pm.
