Walks

We have a selection of local walks that can that be led by visiting staff who meet our leader requirements.

These range from easy downhill walks following the River Wharfe to more strenuous excursions following the Roman road, Buckden Rake, taking in the valley head.

We are in a particularly beautiful part of the Dales and our walks allow participants to see what the rural landscape offers. These walks also allow time for reflection – only when we are given time to think can we learn from our experiences.

It is also possible to undertake an instructor-led walks, which facilitates excursions over higher summits such as Buckden Pike and Great Whernside or other local hills. These can provide very rewarding days, with a profound sense of achievement when the summit is reached. All these walks, whether of half-day or full-day duration, provide great learning opportunities; in relation to river and valleys; geology – especially the limestone environment; and history from the Celts to the lead miners of the 19th Century
