Leeds U3A The University of the Third Age

The canal gardens, Roundhay

Strollers Group

The Strollers Group meets every third Wednesday of the month. These walks are 2½ to 4 miles. We try to visit a place of interest en route and usually manage to find a tea shop. Places have included Valley Gardens at Harrogate, Roundhay Park, Ripley, and Saltaire/Shipley Glen. We are planning some canal and riverside walks, Ripon parks, York river walk. Our enjoyment is from the surroundings and the company.
