Sadly and for obvious reasons we decided to cancel our annual Walking Festival in 2020. However, things are brightening up and we are planning to hold our 2021 Walking Festival on Bank Holiday Monday August 30th. This will of course be subject to Government guidelines. More details will be posted on…
Black Girls Hike (BGH) have recently contacted us as they were looking to organise their first walk in Yorkshire with a start in Bingley. The group provides a safe space for Black women to explore the outdoors. The aim of the group is to develop services and projects to increase the participation and development of Black women in the outdoors, and opportunities to engage. It seeks to encourage Black women to reconnect with nature; the group hosts nationwide group hikes, outdoor activity days and training events.

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.”
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.
