  • Wednesday 15th March 2017

Making regular stops the walks take about 3 hours and are suitable for people of any age. No previous knowledge is required! The trail follows paths which can be muddy in wet weather so appropriate footwear is advised.

The walks are free and no booking is required but for further information contact Bill Fraser on 0113 2608764 or email w.fraser@btinternet.com

A booklet, 'Roundhay Park - A Walk Back in Time' (24 pages, full colour) which describes the marked geology trail in Roundhay Park is available. It is a combined effort between LGA members, who provided the idea and the content, and Friends of Roundhay Park, who provided the help on the ground. It can be found in various local outlets for 1.00 or by post. Contact Bill Fraser on 0113 2608764 or email w.fraser@btinternet.com for further details.
