Steeton Walking for Health Group
Steeton Walking Group has now been going for nine years and we have members from Haworth, Keighley, Sutton, Carleton and Gargrave. We have a membership of nineteen 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! The winter of 2015/16 was particularly bad weather wise but we only had to cancel three walks during that time 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. We are always on the look out for new walks and average around 6 miles each week. Anyone wishing to join us can contact Barry Wilson on 01535 654339 for further details.
As one or two people are finding the distance and stiles rather difficult we are starting short, fairly level walks as an alternative. Please contact Pat Andrews on 01535 658689 for details.
