welcome to ramblers Yorkshire!
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.
86 years after the Kinder Trespass in April 1932, walkers from Huddersfield Group commemorated the historic event with a walk to Boulsworth Hill on the Brontë Moors.
It’s sixteen years since the formation of Take A Hike and we continue to see new faces on most walks, despite there now being several local online groups aimed at younger walkers.
