Group Walk: Coal & the industrial revolution in Leicester
Tuesday 26 April at 10.30am
Around 2 hours 30 minutes, medium pace (3 miles).
Starting 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
This new themed walk is led and 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 several information stops along the way. Due to the duration of this ‘walk and talk’, there will be a short comfort break about two-thirds of the way around the route in a park with public toilet facilities. You are recommended to bring your own drink and snacks for this short break. We will then resume the walk and return to the city centre.
This walk is free to attend, but numbers are limited. For full details about this walk, click ‘Book your space’ below to visit Eventbrite or book by phone during office hours.
