Walking is a fantastic way to get – and stay – healthy.

One of the reasons health experts give walking rave reviews is because it’s a ‘lifestyle exercise’. That means you can usually make time for it without too much of a change to your daily routine. Walking to work, to the shops, or the final mile from the bus stop may take a little more time, but it’s certainly not the big project that signing up for a gym (and the time or cost to get there) can be.

St Andrew’s View is within walking distance of a range of local facilities, including employment opportunities further north on Bruntcliffe Road and Gelderd Road, education facilities including both primary and secondary schools, retail and leisure destinations including ASDA and Morley town centre.

Barratt Homes has funded improvements to the local pedestrian network as part of the St Andrew’s View development, including a new pelican crossing and wider footways on Bruntcliffe Road in the vicinity of the site and 2 additional crossing points further west. Our aim is to make it even easier and safer for you to travel locally on foot.
