Forthcoming Organised Walks
Saturday 2nd September – Baildon Fringe Walk
The car park where we shall gather at 8 am is by Pennythorn Hill. From Baildon take the Hawksworth Road out of the village but shortly after the cattle grid, turn left and go to the top of the hill where the car park is situated on the right hand side. Alternatively, from Eldwick, leave the village on the road to Dick Hudson’s but turn right near the Acorn Public House and continue past the riding stables and Glovershaw Farm, going uphill to the top of the road alongside the golf course. The car park is on your left.
The whole area has migrants stopping off such as Wheatear, Whinchat and Warblers. Red Kite and Buzzard are regular.
The walk will finish at mid-day and walking boots are needed.
Saturday 16th September - Washburn Valley Walk
We congregate at 8 am besides Lindley Wood Reservoir where the B6451 crosses it. To get there, leave Otley using B6451 which starts at the cross roads in the town centre near the market area. The road takes you over the River Wharfe where you turn right passing the park on your right. Continue until you come to a sign to turn left for Pateley Bridge and this takes you through the village of Farnley. Continuing on B6451, you drop down to the reservoir which is on the left and park on the other side of the bridge/dam wall on the left hand side of the road.
Our walk takes us up the valley to Folly Hall Wood and back through fields on the other side. There should be migrants passing through in the hedgerows and woods.
Walking boots are required and the walk finishes at mid-day.
