Description
You are most welcome to walk the full trail on the first Saturday of each month from April to October 2019, or to visit just one or two of the venues, and return at a later date to see the others. It is your day. Enjoy! The route and approximate timings now are: 10.00 Starting time at St Peter’s church, leaving at 10.45. (651 Leeds Road, BD3 8EL) 11.00 Arrive at the Abu Bakar masjid, leaving at 11.45. 12.00 Arrive at the Hindu mandir (temple), leaving at 12.45. 1.00 Arrive at Sikh Gurdwara – whilst there enjoying ‘langar’ vegetarian lunch which is provided free to all - leaving at 2.15 2.30pm – 3.15pm Bradford cathedral. Opening times: Each of these places of worship is open all year round; and you will never be turned away if you visit even in the depths of winter. However weather conditions and walking safety suggest that the Faith Trail ‘rests’ from November to February. Booking is essential by contacting our Director of Education and Visitors. All ages and backgrounds are most welcome; but children under 16 should be accompanied by an adult. Safety when walking between venues: Please understand that the guides at each venue cannot take responsibility for the safety of visitors between venues, even when they are accompanying you en route. We will always follow the route we judge to be safest. But walkers must use their own care and discretion at every road crossing. Accessibility. There is one quite steep (down) hill section. Disabled friendly toilets are available. Behaviour code. The whole ethos of the trail is one of enquiry and dialogue, in a spirit of building understanding and friendship, not controversy. Any/ all questions are welcomed – there are no ‘closed’ issues - but questions should be asked in a spirit of respect. If we run out of time, do arrange to call back to any of the venues in your own time. Feedback is most welcomed and can be sent to our Director of Education and Visitors. Photographs can be taken at each of the venues but by all means ask if you are in doubt.
