Hunslet Walking Tour

Print this booklet and take it with you or download it to your mobile devices for a guided tour of the surviving sights of the former engine works in the Hunslet area. The booklet also mentions the remains of the earliest works in Holbeck that built the first commercially successful steam locomotives and some of the other sights dotted around Leeds, as well as details of the blue plaques to look out for.

A few works are yet to have such plaques fitted but it is getting so that you could do a guided tour of the sites with the plaques to tell the story. This page lists the plaques that can be found on Leeds engine works sites.Click here to read more
