Group Walk: Coal & the Industrial Revolution in Leicester

Saturday 8 October at 10am

Note: this walk was originally scheduled for Saturday 10 September but we have had to postpone to October.

Up to 2 hours 30 minutes, medium pace (3 miles).

From the Highcross monument on Jubilee Square, city centre.


Information about the pace of our walks, what to wear/bring, the weather and much more can be found on our City Council Group Walks page.

Presented by one of our volunteers with an interest in Leicester’s industrial past. Join us to reflect on the importance of coal in Leicester’s industrial revolution, discover the key infrastructure which enabled coal to be imported to Leicester and to visit some of the former industrial sites where coal was used.

The walk is around 3 miles with information stops along the way. There is an opportunity for a short comfort break about two-thirds of the way around, in a park with facilities. We recommended you bring your own drink and snacks for this short break. We then resume the walk to return to the city centre. 

This walk is free to attend, but numbers are limited and places must be booked. 

Book via Eventbrite or by phone during office hours.
