Calderdale Heritage Walks Summer Programme 2019

Posted on Updated on

 

 

The summer programme has fortnightly walks plus extra ones including Bank Holiday Mondays.
No pre-booking required, just turn up and pay the Guide – its £3 (all ages).

Almost all starting points are served by public transport. Well behaved dogs on leads are allowed on walks unless indicated by the No Dogs symbol.

There are still a few walks from the Winter Programme with the next on;

Sunday 3 March – The North Side of Elland.

Elland goes back to at least 1086 yet in 1760 much of the land was open land. In the century that followed, the arrival of canal, railway, new roads, industry and more housing changed things radically.
Meet Ian Philp at 1:30pm by St. Mary’s Parish Church, HX5 0BW for the latest Calderdale Heritage Walk.

Keep an eye on the Facebook page to see any late alterations.

The complete Summer Walks Programme as shown below can be downloaded here.
