New members guide to finding the start point
In our programme and on the website we will list the Date, time and location of the walk and also a link to a map of the route if we have one.
What do those strange letters and numbers in brackets mean and why do we use them?
They are a grid reference, and if you click on them it will open a link to streetmap where you will see a large arrow showing the start point.
Why do we use these instead of a postcode?.
For example if we start a walk at Fen bog which is just before the junction to Goathland.
Clicking on (SE855975) in this example will take to to the start, but it's nearest postcode is YO18 7NT. As this is the security gate of RAF Fylingdales it is not much use to us.
Once you get to the streetmap site at the base you will see an option to convert coordinates. selecting this will give all variations your car sat nav or phone need and also includes what three words if that is your preferred application.
Walking the Public Rights of Way of Yorkshire and beyond
Our well managed group is run by a committee of eight members. We walk together every weekend and occasionally on weekdays all year round and on weekday evenings in the summer...
We are keen to promote car sharing and either the walk leader or the walks coordinator will assist when possible in reducing the number of vehicles travelling to the start of walks by arranging car sharing. Phone numbers and e-mail addresses are shown on the back of the programme.
If you would like come on a "taster walk" you can either telephone or e-mail us on the link below or just turn up. Weekend walks can vary between around five and twelve miles in length so check your ability and look at the ascent and grading (Easy, Moderate or Challenging). This is always indicated in the programme.
If you enjoy your first walk and come again the annual subscription for 2021 of £7 is due on your second walk. This helps offset our expenses and keep this website going. Our group is affiliated to the Ramblers and we strongly support their aims and objectives. We hold civil liability insurance to help protect our leaders and members.
