On 1st August 2019 (Yorkshire Day), Bingley Walkers are Welcome are participating in the ‘Step Out’ sponsored walk organised by Cancer Support Yorkshire. This evening walk starting from Cottingley Community Centre is an occasion to raise money for this great charity which helps “local people with the emotional and physical effects of cancer, through counselling, complementary therapies and group work.”
Why not join us on one of our regular Sunday walks? They always take place on the second Sunday of every month starting outside Bingley Arts Centre at 10am. The walks will be approximately five miles / 2 hours. What do you need? Bring liquid refreshment and wear walking boots. After the walk we usually have lunch or a drink in one of the town’s welcoming cafés. Most of them now display our “Walkers are Welcome” stickers in their windows.
Here are some exciting guided walks organised in Bingley Prince of Wales Park this year by the Friends of Prince of Wales Park, one of the local organisations linked to us.
This Grade II Historic England listed woodland park has some good formal paths and drives but it is still recommended to wear good footwear as you may walk on tracks through woodland or across the open heath at the top of the park.
Planned to introduce non-birders to birds in St.Ives Estate, the walks can take up to 3 hours depending upon weather and the birds. They take place in all weathers so please come ready for the conditions with suitable footwear. Children are welcome but dogs will hinder our chances of getting close to the birds. Open to all and free of charge.
