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.

Tuesday 25th February     Saxton     8 miles   grade 1/2    9.30 start    CHANGE OF WALK 

Led by Jane M.    Joint venture with the U3A Extra  walking group.

Due to the risk of flooding in the Nun Monkton area, Jane has changed her originally scheduled walk to a safer more local route.

This walk starts at Saxton Church (LS24 9PY) where there is plenty of roadside parking and we should be ready to set off around 9.50am.  We will leave the village on Cotchers Lane and complete the Towton Battlefield circuit returning via Saxton.  We then pick up the path to Lead Church and Low Lead before returning to Saxton.  There is an opportunity to leave the walk after the first 5 mile circuit if anyone prefers a shorter walk.  The route is mainly flat, no stiles with a couple of short stretches on road and some parts will be muddy.

Please let Jane know if you plan to make your own way to the starting point

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.
