Please note, the riverside footpath route from Prebends bridge is not suitable for wheelchair of buggy access. An alternative route is available.
From North Road the road bears to the right at the Halifax Building Society towards Crossgate bank where the road then forks left, after ‘The Fighting Cocks’ pub towards South Street. The paths are flagstone with some dropped curbs and a tarmac road. The road becomes cobbled before returning to tarmac at the top of South Street. There is a metal fence with a low brick wall in places at Castle and Cathedral viewing positions.
