Footpath in Post Hill woods
Footpath in Post Hill woods
This is one of the public footpaths in the woods, which was probably originally the route by which quarry workers walked up to their place of employment. The trees in this area are relatively young, maybe less than thirty years old.
Post Hill woods, Pudsey

Post Hill is now a nature reserve managed by Leeds City Council. It consists of a largely wooded hillside about a mile in length, sloping down to the Pudsey Beck. Within the woods are remains of various quarries which were worked until the early 20th century, and there are several tracks and footpaths. At the time of writing there was a public consultation on a proposal to upgrade the public footpaths within the reserve to bridleway status, in order to make legal the already de facto use of the woods for mountain biking.

A history of the site, including the use of the hillside for motorcycle hill climbing trials in the mid 20th century, can be found on Wikipedia LinkExternal link
