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 19th October    Aysgarth  Falls and Bolton Castle      Approx 10 miles grade 2/3      9.00 start
 
Led by Jillian
 

This walk starts at the National Park Centre at Aysgath, goes up to Bolton Castle then takes a circular route across the fell side back to Aysgarth. It is mostly on good paths but there are some very wet and muddy stretches, which will be slippy, so walking poles would be advisable. There are no ladder stiles but quite a few gap stiles in walls with very springy doors and one very short rocky descent.

Directions to start

  • A1 and then A684 towards Aysgarth.
  • The right turn to the National Park Centre is signposted as you approach Aysgarth.
  • Parking at the National Park Centre is 4.50   DL8 3TH

There are toilets at the car park and also in the car park at Bolton Castle

Jillian will go from Wetherby if anyone else is. Please can you let her know if you intend to go straight there.

 

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.
