Note: We are retaining the booking system in case of last minute changes to the walk details for Covid, weather or car parking etc. Maximum 20 on the Walk. Please book a place by contacting Allan Matthews on 07929983493, or via email – (allldm14@gmail.com)

The route is a figure of eight, and is never more than 2 miles from the car park.

The walk is a mix of woodland including some interesting geological formations; and farmland. On a clear day there are excellent views at various points. These include Surprise View, where we will take a short break. There are several potential lunch locations depending on timing on the day.

Sorry No Dogs.

starting point
Chevin Quarry CP on East Chevin Road. Note from John:- If heading North-West on East Chevin Road (from Bramhope towards Otley) there are two other car parks close together on the right. However, East Chevin Quarry Car Park is a further half mile on the left. This car park was quite empty at 10:15 on the recce, despite the 2 above being busy. I would recommend car sharing wherever practical. It may be useful for those attending to have each others mobile numbers in case we need to shuttle from another car park.
