We all have a duty to look after the natural world around us and when a site is as stunning as Stonebridge Beck that’s a duty to be taken seriously.
Working with ecological experts, we’ve planted native trees and shrubs, reclaimed the beck from decline, and used sympathetic natural materials.
The rejuvinated mill pond will provide a haven for amphibians, insects and birds. Swifts, swallows, and bats will make their homes amongst specially designed boxes in the eaves. And hedgehogs can hide away over the winter in in refuges created for their use.
At Stonebridge Beck, there’s no compromise between the bright lights of the city and the calm and quiet of the countryside. You can have both. Leeds city centre is just a 10 minute drive away, with some of the finest shopping, nightlife and arts the North has to offer.
Public transport is on tap too, with regular bus routes stopping by Stonebridge Beck, connecting with one of the UK’s busiest transport hubs at Leeds station – you can be on your way to London or Edinburgh within half an hour. Or if two wheels are more your style, the waterside cycle path will take you the whole way to the city centre.
Stonebridge Beck is close to a choice of great schools, lush green spaces and excellent local amenities. It is also well catered for by public transport and provides easy access to the motorway network.
The wide expanse of Farnley Hall Park and the Post Hill Nature Trail are on your doorstep waiting to be explored and the nearby Manor Golf Club will appeal to golfers of all abilities. A wide range of activities, from swimming to yoga, are available at Armley Leisure Centre and, as dusk falls, there are several pubs and restaurants close by to while away the evening.
With all this and more to enjoy, there is no doubting this is a very special part of the world and all within easy reach of the city centre.
