Wetherby to Otley on the Ebor Way

2019-03-09 09:15:00 2019-03-09 17:30:00 Europe/London Wetherby to Otley on the Ebor Way

This longer walk follows a stretch of the Ebor Way through Wharfedale from Wetherby to Otley. The first half of the walk follows the River Wharfe to Harewood, after which we cross through farmland to Bramhope and then onto the Chevin before descending into Otley. 

This is a longer walk which will be walked at a moderate pace, allowing us to finish in daylight. We'll take breaks for snacks and lunch – you may wish to bring a little more food and water than usual since this is a longer walk. 

To reach the start of the walk you have two options:

Park in Otley [note – Saturday is market day so allow sufficient time to find town centre parking] and catch the 08.30 bus (number 923) from Otley Bus Station, arriving in Wetherby at 09.13. I believe that the fare is £4.30 for this journey. When we arrive back in Otley (on foot) your car will be waiting. 

– Catch the X99 Bus from Leeds to Wetherby (dep. 08.05, arr. Wetherby 08.55) to the walk meeting point. At the end of the walk catch the X84 Otley-Leeds bus to return to Leeds City Centre.  

The walk will begin from Wetherby Bus Station (on Market Place, outside Ask Italian Restaurant) at 9.15am. If the bus from Otley is running late then we will wait for it to arrive.
