Proposed New Walk & Cycle way from East Leeds to Wetherby

Here is an exciting development proposed for East Leeds: Elmet Greenway.

The proposed Greenway is to link Cross Gates with Thorner and eventually to Wetherby by foot, bicycle or horse. The Greenway will include a safe crossing of the A64.

The present status is that we’re awaiting an updated feasibility study, due out any day now.

The project is supported by:

Leeds City Council,


Manston and Swarcliffe Community Forum,

Scholes Parish Council,

Thorner Parish Council.

There is also interest in Bardsey.

Elmet Greenway Group welcome any comments. The following links should be of interest to all Ramblers in the region.
