Welcome to the website of the West Riding Area of the Ramblers’ Association. The West Riding Area takes its name from the days when Yorkshire was divided into three “ridings” a West Riding, North Riding and East Riding.

The region we look after on behalf of the walking community is centred on Leeds and Bradford and includes Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield, the Craven and Harrogate districts of North Yorkshire, and a substantial amount of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
