Much of the West Leeds Country Park & Green Gateways trail closely follows a number of small streams, including Pudsey Beck and Tyersal Beck. Today these watercourses provide tranquil places, rich in wildlife, but up until the end of the 19th century and into the early 20th century, they may have been used by Gibralter, South Park and Union Bridge Mills for various purposes.
