Central Leeds Nature Reserve

The Central Leeds Nature Reserve is represented by a thin strip of wild vegetation between the river Aire and the Leeds Liverpool Canal. Largely left to its own devices, the site is seeing natural succession in the vegetation as more trees start to emerge from the thick ground vegetation. Wildlife abound on this site undeterred by adjacent developments and the clatter of trains arriving and departing from Leeds City Station. A walk or a gentle jog along canal towpath by the side of the nature reserve provides the ideal tonic for the stressful working life in the offices near by.
