Please find below the latest update from the NEC concerning the recommencement of LDWA Social Walks.

Following the lifting of almost all Covid-19 restrictions in England from last Monday, the NEC have issued guidance on social walks going forward.
Full details can be found by following the link:

In summary, the main changes are that there will be no limit on numbers on social walks (other than those set by the walk leader) and the Risk Assessment is no longer mandatory.
The Walks Register is still required for Insurance and NHS Test and Trace purposes and we ask anyone planning to attend a walk to reserve a place with the walk leader unless otherwise stated in the walk details.

Welcome to the website of the West Yorkshire LDWA.

Our Group was founded in 1976 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".

West Yorkshire 2021 Christmas walk and meal Saturday 4th December 2021

The Walk - Lesley’s Crackers Walk

Our Christmas walk will be around 12miles in length and start at 9am from outside the Wheatley Arms, Ben Rhydding.
It will be walked at a sociable pace and finish around 2pm.

Route details are still being finalised so watch this space for an update.

Drink and meal.

Finishing walking at 2pm gives time for everyone to have a festive drink together in the bar and also the opportunity to glam yourself up (not compulsory) if you are staying to eat with us at 3pm.

We have a private function room which holds maximum of 30 places so you need to book as soon as possible with our Social Secretary, Lesley Peel so you’re not disappointed. First come, first served!

The menu can be seen by clicking here

2 courses for £24.

3 courses for £29.

Payment for the meal can be made either direct to the West Yorkshire LDWA bank account (details to be supplied when booking) or in cash to either Lesley Peel or Sue Manley.
You can arrange this with Lesley when you book your place.
We need full payment and food choice by Friday 19th November.

You may not be able to make both the walk and the meal but we would love it if you could join us on either.

Don’t forget; book early to avoid disappointment.
