Looking for a Walk in Yorkshire?

Time to get walking again!


It's good to get out and walk. The benefits to health and well-being are manifold all throughout the year, however especially in Springtime we start to think about the mud drying up and getting out to walk in the beautiful English Countryside. However if you need inspiration for where to find new and interesting places to walk there are two websites that might help with making your decision.


Walking in Yorkshire has hundreds of walks to download and print, free, it also has books of walks, details of all the walking groups in the county and much more. Whether you want to walk on your own or with a group all the information is there in one place.


John Harris (the custodian of the website) said ‘There is so much walking information on the web but it is difficult to find. Walking in Yorkshire (part of the Walking in England website) has brought it together in one place so whether you are walking from home, or away on holiday, you will be able to find a walk suitable for you’.


With walks from half a mile to twelve miles plus long, and a note of suitability for pushchairs and wheelchairs, everyone can find a walk to enjoy.


So home or away, check out the websites and get walking!
