Geo-Trips :: 2018 AGM Guided Walk

Wakefield City Centre

A walk from Bull Ring, Wakefield, Sat, 30 Jun 2018 by Mark Anderson

A guided walk led by Christine Johnstone after the 2018 AGM, followed by a walk to Chantry Bridge. Final image was taken on the way home, as I couldn't miss the opportunity to photograph a local landmark on a sunny evening.

Click the blue circles to see a photograph taken from that spot and read further information about the location. The blue lines indicate the direction of view. There is also a slideshow of this trip. ( )
