Leeds Echoes "Walk Through Time" is a special 4 part series of my podcast that’s been supported by Leeds Civic Trust and Heritage Open Days. It represents my first real attempt at creating these episodes whilst really thinking about someone listening on location. They’re my attempt at a more accessible walking tour. Take them at your own pace. Listen on location in any way that’s accessible to you. I’ve focused on 4 areas that represent a couple of intersecting things - places both I and others have sought solace during lockdowns, places newcomers to Leeds often experience first and places that younger people might most associate with. At any rate, I hope you enjoy them.
