description

On Bank Holiday Monday 7th May 2007 Leeds Ramblers for the first time laid on two walks. Both started from Ilkey Old bridge with a 5 mile walk led by Gladys Miles and a longer 9 mile walk led by me, Peter Sweeney,  Christine remembered this as the first Leeds Ramblers walk she came on. Little did we know that we were fated to set up home & live together for 10 years. She didn't come on my longer walk. She played safe and stuck with the shorter walk.====================================

The whole group will walk together and have our refreshment stop in Addingham church yard. Afterwards Liz will lead a group back to Ilkley along the Dales Way but Gerry Taylor will lead those who feel more energetic up to Beamsley Beacon and back to Ilkley across Middleton Moor. If you want a longer walk but don't fancy going all the way to the top of the Beacon, don't worry, we come down the same way as going up so you can stay at the base of the Beacon and join the group on their way down.
