Steeton Walking for Health Group
Steeton Walking Group has now been going for many years and we have members from Haworth, Keighley, Sutton, Carleton and Gargrave. We have a membership of about twenty and meet every Monday morning at the Football Club Car Park off Station Road at 9.30am. We then use either bus, train or cars to the start of the walk. We get together at Steeton Hall afterwards for drinks and a chat and to arrange walks for the next month. We average about 10 walkers per week although we have had as many as 15 and as few as 3! Our favourite (especially in inclement weather) is still Bolton Abbey as there are many and varied walks from there. We have been to Foulridge, Pendle, Menston and Poole to mention but a few and have old favourites such as Gargrave, Grassington and Haworth.
To accommodate walkers of all abilities, there are now 2 walking groups.
The first group usually walk between 5 and 8 miles. They are arranged in advance and are always subject to change to suit the weather. Below are some future walks

16th Sept - Appletreewick 14th Oct - Settle
23rd Sept Addingham 21st Oct - Cononley
30th Sept - Ponden Kirk 28th Oct - Linton/Burnsall
The 2nd group walk between 3 and 5 miles and have around 9 regular walkers, and usually average around 6, meeting at Steeton Hall car park at 9.45am. September walks include Addingham/Skipton, Farnhill, Foulridge, Barden Moor and Timble. Please contact Pat Andrews on 01535 658689 for details
