Welcome to the website of the West Yorkshire LDWA.
Our Group was founded in 1977 and is a friendly, active local walking group.
We have a fine selection of social walks throughout the year, most are in the Yorkshire Dales, West Yorkshire and North Yorkshire, though we occasionally stray further afield.

On most of our walks, unless it says otherwise in the programme, you should bring food and drink for lunch and snacks. If the leader has planned for the group to eat lunch in a pub this will be clearly stated in the programme.

You will find our walks programme on this website, and it's also published in the LDWA national magazine, "Strider".

Well done to all who participated in organizing and helping out in what was a very successful 100 in Scotland.

In the event of bad weather or the forecast of extreme weather (this applies for all walks and all seasons) the cancellation of a walk will be confirmed the previous evening on Facebook, by email and in Stop Press in the Future Event details on our website. Please remember to check for updated information. If in any doubt please contact the leader before you travel.
