Why is New Briggate “NEW”?

 Registration is closed for this event
Join historian Robert Dyson on a walk around New Briggate, to expose the Development of Leeds to the North of the Headrow from agricultural land to what we see today.

On this guided walk we will cover religion, transport, the “Grand Quarter of the New Briggate, find out why “New” Briggate is so called and learn about the connection between New Briggate and the Princess of Wales. You’ll also discover what the New Briggate Heritage Action Zone is, and hear about the recent three-year 'Hidden Histories of New Briggate' project with East Street Arts.

UPDATE: At the end of the walk, from 7pm to 8.30pm, walk attendees are invited to drinks and nibbles at KINO for the launch of East Street Arts’ 'Hidden Histories of New Briggate' book. This is included with your walk ticket!

The walk will start at the junction of Lady Lane and Vicar Lane City and finishes back at Vicar Lane. From here you can easily reach your cars or major public transport arteries - or indeed, restaurants, bars or pubs for further refreshments and socialising.
