Lesley's Crackers Walk
Our Christmas walk will be around 12 miles in length and start at 9am from outside the Wheatley Arms, Ben Rhydding. (Parking available at the Wheatley Arms). 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.
2 courses - 24; 3 courses - 29
Payment for the meal can be made either direct to the West Yorkshire LDWA bank account (details to be supplied upon request) or in cash to either Lesley Peel or Sue Manley. You can arrange this with Lesley when you book our place.
We need full payment and food choices by FRIDAY 19 NOVEMBER 2021
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

General Notes
The route visits the pretty villages of Denton and Nesfield and then heads north before dropping down to Addingham Suspension Bridge. From here we follow the riverside path to Ilkley, add in a visit to The Tarn and then take a direct route through Ben Rhydding back to the Wheatley Arms. Sunshine has been specially ordered for the day to fully appreciate the beautiful Autumn colours !
