Street Flowers – Urban Survivors
This walk is a little different to the one advertised (as a result of the recce done on the 24th July). We will (as in the original information) meet outside the Winter Gardens.
From here, we will walk through Mobray Park, exiting at Park Road. After 100 metres, we turn down theEsplanade and then walk along Ryhope Road for about 200 metres into Backhouse Park. We next cross Ryhope Road, accessing Villette Road through Barley Mow Park and walking down to Corporation Road. A short way along Corporation Road we come to a little green oasis in the middle of Hendon – a local community garden, a large group of allotments and a series of pigeon coops. Crossing over Commercial Road, we pass through the subway under the railway line (now disused) and on to the coast.
Now we can really stretch our legs! The final part of journey follows the coastal path from Hendon to Ryhope Dene where this walk finishes. There will cars here to transport participants back to Mobray Park.
