River Leen History Walk, Travelright

28.03.2015, 11:30 am2:00 pm

Event Navigation

Follow the course of the River Leen in Nottingham starting at its outfall near Wilford Toll Bridge and finishing for tea at Basford St. Leodegarius.

Local Historian Chris Matthews will lead walkers through a landscape of great historical change; medieval settlement, coal mining, railways, flood management and various industries in bicycles, brewing and soap. Running through all of this has always been the ancient river, which today is being improved by the River Leen Greenway – an emerging car free route.

The walk is flat and mostly traffic free.

Meet either at Wilford Toll Bridge Gatehouse (north embankment) at 12 noon, or at the Brian Clough statue, Market Square at 11:30 to catch the 48 bus at 11:40..

Finish at Basford St Leodegarius Church at about 2pm.

The walk is about 4.5 miles in length.
