posted in: Walking Events | 0

Good news, we are back! We are resuming our second Sunday in the month walks with effect from Sunday 13th June and we really hope you will join us.

Meet us at 10 a.m. outside Bingley Arts Centre for a two hour walk discovering Bingley and including amazing views over our town.

The above will of course be subject to Government guidelines and every precaution will be taken to keep walkers safe. The walk will be risk assessed and should there be a large number of walkers we will divide into smaller groups to ensure your safely.

As always, our walks are free of charge and open to anyone. However, if you can register your interest, this will help us count numbers before hand. Please look at the disclaimer at the bottom of the page too.

We will take you all around town on a walk of discovery. Bingley was granted the status of market town in 1212 by King John and there is a lot of history to discover! It's textile heritage has left us with a unmissable industrial landscape with its many mills and chimneys. However, we will see many other interesting features on this walk such as Myrtle Park and Prince of Wales Park, the Leeds and Liverpool Canal with its Five Rise Locks – the town's crown jewel – and the spectacular views from Gilstead Crag, a rugged rock overhanging above Bingley!

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.

Whilst we don't use a booking system for this walk and we are happy for you to just turn up, it will help us if you can register your interest to this walk. We can have an idea of rough number and split the group if necessary.


  • Whilst leaders take every care, your comfort and safety are your own responsibility.
  • Covid-19 restrictions on meeting and gathering outside may mean we will have to split the group. We have planned contingency in such event and are able to run two walks. However, if numbers are way above our capacity, we may have to refuse people joining us. This will be done on a first come, first served basis.
  • The pace of the walk is appropriate to the distance and the available time. We ask that walkers accept the pace set.
  • Dogs (on a short lead) are welcome on most walks but please get in touch with us before hand (Facebook or Web contact form)
