A Christmas Walk in Bingley

Our special Christmas themed walk was very festive indeed! On Sunday 10th December at 10 o'clock, we had a gentle pre-Christmas stroll. We started by walking through Myrtle Park on to Cottingley Bridge. From there we eventually picked up the canal and amble on to the Five Rise Locks. We had to do a bit of climbing (we are in a valley after all!) weaving our way up to the Prince of Wales Park. Once in the park we headed to a seating area where we had a short break.

We've organised a Christmas Walk every year since 2018. From 2019 to 2022, we sang carols along the way at various stations in town. We called the walk a “Jingle Bell Stroll" and almost all our Committee members took part. Oh! And Santa hats, jumpers, ties and earrings were always welcome to add to the festivities!

December 2023 Walk

Despite the rain, 20 walkers went on our Christmas Themed walk. Starting on Riverside walk, through Myrtle Park, on Beckfoot Lane, Wagon Lane, Leeds and Liverpool Canal up to Three Rise Locks and up the snickets to finally arrive at Prince of Wales Park.

By the time they arrived it was a bit soggy wet but a good time was had by all. There, they shared mince pies and mulled wine in the picnic area before they set off back down Park Road.

December 2022 Walk

What a glorious winter’s day for our third Jingle Bell Stroll. Sturdy footwear was the order of the day for the icy conditions as we walked up to 5 Rise Locks along the Leeds Liverpool Canal to Dowley Gap and back along Beckfoot Lane to Myrtle Park.
Along the way we sang carols and Christmas songs at various points and finished off by enjoying a hot drink and mince pies at Tarquins Tea Rooms And Bar Myrtle Park Bingley.
