_Walk round parts of Leeds south of the river and learn how the area is being remade._ Once there were mills, foundries, dyeworks, malthouses, wharves and housing for industrial workers. The Aire and the air were filthy. Who would want to live here if they could choose a cleaner suburb instead? Industrial decline and housing demolition from the middle of the 20th century left many sites vacant or underused. Yet a renaissance started in the late 1980s and the pace is picking up. The whole South Bank is so close to the old city centre and has massive potential to provide accommodation and spaces for living, working, study and leisure. Starting and finishing at The Tetley, a few minutes' walk south from Leeds Bridge. There's a Bar & Kitchen. Adjacent car park £4.50 for up to 5 hours.
