Horsforth Hike

2018-11-17 10:00:00 2018-11-17 16:15:00 Europe/London Horsforth Hike

This is an eleven mile circular walk starting from the park in Horsforth. We will visit, or pass close to, Newlay, Rodley, Calverley, Greengates, Apperley Bridge and Rawdon. Surprisingly countrified, this walk takes us through fields and woodland, as well as along quiet lanes, the canal and the River Aire.

Be prepared for mud!

It will be getting dark towards the end of the walk so you might want to bring a torch.

Please note:

We will meet at Fink Hill car park (it's opposite the bottom end of Town Street, next to the clock). If the car park is full you will need to park on Hall Lane, or in Hall Park car park/the surrounding streets and walk to Fink Hill.

Car sharing is highly recommended.

Horsforth train station is about a 30 minute walk from the meeting point.

The meeting point is a 10 minute walk from New Road Side, Horsforth.

Drinks afterwards at the Town Street Tavern in Horsforth.
