Maiden's Walk, behind The Sage
Maiden's Walk, behind The Sage
Maiden's Walk is a narrow lane NZ2563 : Old Viaduct and Wasteland that provides pedestrian access from Hawk's Road to the east side (Performance Square) of The Sage. The stonework on the left side of the lane are former coal drops dating from 1840. These used to support a railway track arising from Brandling Junction Railway Oakwellgate Station and had sloped timber chutes below for dropping coal into wagons below which led via an inclined plane down to the river. They were Grade II Listed in 1983 LinkExternal link
There is an album of photos from 2003 by Brian Pears here LinkExternal link
CoMusica Graffiti Wall, Maiden's Walk
The CoMusica legal graffiti wall provides a surface about 350 foot long just behind the Sage music and arts centre. Boarded up railway arches further up the lane on the right provide additional space. It is run by Sandy Duff of the GMC (ghetto method crew) in cooperation with the Sage and operates as a centre for Nexus graffiti boards displayed on metro lines LinkExternal link
