Turn right at the foot of the stairs. Photograph shows the exit you will come out of. Walk along Neville street, under the railway bridge. While still under the bridge turn right into the arch that runs under the station.
|There are a few exits from the arches to the open area of Granary Wharf sunshine. The towpath to the right takes you toward Kirkstall. another nice walk in summer. Head towards the canal. This is the start of the Leeds and Liverpool canal. In summer barge trips are run between Granary Wharf and The Armouries Museum.|
