Calverley, Greengates, Fagley
After leaving the main road in Calverley we entered a long, straight, tree lined drive, almost like a disused railway line. However, according to the 1896 OS map there is no evidence of a railway or it leading to a big house etc. The drive is named Calverley Cutting, presumably because it goes in a cutting underneath Clara Drive, and continues in a straight line, bridging the canal, to Parkin Lane and Apperley Road to the old bridge over the River Aire, opposite the George & Dragon.
Meet: 10.15 for 10.30 start

Calverley is situated on the A657 which runs between Shipley and Leeds and the pub is 1.3 miles on the road to Leeds from the crossroads in Greengates
Access to the pub car park when approaching from Greengates involves a very acute right hand turn. You may prefer to park on the road to the right immediately after the pub. (Blackett Street)
WALK: Just under 4.5 miles of mainly tracks and bridleways.
Easy under foot and no stiles. No serious hills.
Food orders to be taken prior to walk. See website for menu. Not the cheapest but hopefully you will find something to suit.
