Today is all about crossing the city of Leeds. I join the canal as soon as possible.
Canalside buildings at various points on the ladder of rejuvenation - from halted crumbling dereliction to shiny balconied penthouses.
Then the centre of town - walking through Kirkgate Market and the County Arcade (one of five Victorian arcades built, according to The Leeds Mercury, as a "necessary antidote to the severely plain buildings of industrial Leeds").
Out of the city centre and through the areas of Potternewton, Chapel Allerton, Moortown to Allwoodley - right at the edge of Leeds, just two roads from the countryside.
In the evening popped to the fantastic Kirkstall Bridge Inn to catch up with my mate Nick.
