Welcome!

The Presentation of Walkers are Welcome Status

 We are a local group of volunteers and walking enthusiasts committed to promoting, sharing and developing our super walks in the Lower Ure Valley. We are part of Yore Vision, a local partnership organisation which is supported by Harrogate Borough Council and many others.  We are proud that we have been awarded Walkers are Welcome status, showing our area to be something special and joining the other walk friendly towns within the national Walkers are Welcome Towns network.   This website is designed to give you all the information you need to have a grand day out, or longer, in this attractive and historic destination, whether travelling by car or public transport.

 

 

Why visit our walks?

We have developed a series of way marked short and longer loop walks, suiting different interests and abilities, which have a fascinating historical focus.  See prehistoric standing stones, walk in the footsteps of the Romans, learn about Blind Jack the remarkable blind bridge builder, find out about WW2 bomber crash sites, or simply take a stroll along a river bank and enjoy Yorkshire nature at its best.  Come on down!   We are also located on two strategic walking routes: The Swale Way and Yore Dale Way, not to mention the fact that we are on a pivotal point on the ‘Way of the Roses’ cycle route that crosses the country through Lancashire and Yorkshire.
