Walk Description

From either the bus stop on Green Road or Green View, walk away from the shops and towards Church Lane. Turn left onto Church Lane, then left onto Mill Pond Lane, and immediately right onto Mill Pond Close. When the road ends, carry on walking between the two stone buildings, past the pond on the right and then turn right at the cluster of trees. Follow this straight path along the back of the allotments, and then before the access path reaches the next road, turn right to follow the Meanwood Valley Trail. Cross over Meanwood Beck via the footbridge and carry straight on.

At the crossroads of paths, continue straight on, and follow the beck until you meet an access road. Turn left and cross the beck, walking along the very narrow Weetwood Mill Lane. Turn right onto Weetwood Lane and then turn right again into the entrance for The Hollies. Turn left to follow the public footpath along the access road, and continue as it enters the wood. Keep following this main, clear path through the wood, not branching off left or right, but following it as it steadily turns to the left, and eventually you reach A6120 Ring Road Adel. Turn right here, and walk along the side of the Ring Road. Just past a bus stop, turn right down Parkside Road.

Continue along Parkside Road, and turn right through the metal stile on the public footpath. Follow the clear path alongside Meanwood Beck and into Meanwood Grove wood, to eventually walk alongside a row of old terrace houses nestled in the wood. Follow the access road down to Green Lane next to the school, and then turn right down to the public footpath as the road turns to the left. Turn right, then left over the bridge and now you retrace your steps back to the bus stops on Green Road / Green View.
