Developing from a small marketing town, Leeds, and specifically Holbeck in South Leeds, became an important centre for the production and marketing of woollen cloth.
Built for the London and Western Railway during the Industrial Revolution, the viaduct is a feat of Victorian engineering and provided a vital transport link into the booming city centre.
It has languished in distinguished neglect ever since.
Just normal people getting together to make where they live a better place. Currently in talks with Network Rail to allow use of viaduct for a community-focused project.
A community garden, green walkway, arts space, park, cycle path, events hub, public allotment, assault course, cafe, music venue, viewing platform.
