Meeting Place for Walks

All walks will meet in the Tadcaster Bus Station Car Park for a 9.30 am start, unless otherwise stated.

Please be at the meeting place at least five minutes early, to be ready for a prompt departure.


Saturday May 18th.   Fairburn Ings    9.30am start from Tadcaster
Led by Joy

It's an interesting walk incorporating newish paths taking us to the top of the reserve, with good views looking down.   Hopefully we'll hear the cuckoo and maybe the bittern.   You don't have to be a 'birder' to enjoy it. We'll be incorporating surrounding areas, not just the reserve. 

Suggested parking at The Chequers Inn large car park in Ledsham  LS25 5LP.

If anybody wants travel directions, please let Joy know.  She'll be travelling straight there.
Tuesday 21st May - Kirkbymoorside - 10 1/2 miles - grade 3 - 9am start
Led by Frances

Tuesday’s walk is a circuit from Kirkbymoorside on generally good paths and tracks through farmland and woodland.  

To drive there, take the A64 east, turn left at at Barton Hill and continue north past Castle Howard, through Slingsby, and up to the A170.  Turn right onto the A170 then come off at the roundabout signposted Kirkbymoorside. Drive straight up Market Place, which becomes High Market Place, then where the road bends sharply to the left, go through a small gap straight ahead into Castlegate.  Carry on up Castlegate then take the right fork into Park Lane. You should find somewhere to park on the right, close to an old chapel, opposite some bungalows. 36 miles, YO62 6BN 

As usual, please meet in the bus station car park in Tadcaster (at 9 am) or the station car park in Wetherby.  

If anyone is coming from Wetherby, or driving straight there, please let Frances know.

Tuesday 25th June       20th Anniversary walk and tea
Michael has emailed members with preliminary details of this walk and the tea afterwards.

To assist in planning the catering, would all members who plan to come to the afternoon celebration let Pat know before the end of April if possible, with £10 pp to her (to cover the cost of the tea in Bramham Village Hall) before the end of May.


This quarter's programme,  April to June.
The second version of this has been emailed to members.


Contacting the Emergency Services
This YouTube video covers two vital things you should know about if you need to contact the Emergency Services on a mobile phone when out walking.  One is on using 112 rather than 999 to contact them (far better, for reasons explained in the video).  The other is about using a text message if you can't get a phone signal.

The link also appears on our Club Downloads page, along with the earlier advice about using a text message in an emergency.
