“REMEMBRANCE WALK”. A Baildon Walkers are Welcome “AUTUMN SIXERS” guided walk. @ Meet at The Potted Meat Stick in centre of Baildon
Nov 11 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Meet at the Potted Meat Stick for a 4 and a half circular walk. This steady walk will visit a number of sites around Baildon, associated with people and events to be remembered from 1914 up to the present. There is a short section which may be steep and muddy, but otherwise we are on firm ground. Please wear warm clothes and a hot drink and snack, so we can have time to stand, and stare and reflect.  (Thanks to Baildon Local History Society for their local historical walks booklets that have been so useful for the research into this walk).  Walks Leader: Pat Addinell. Target time for completion of the walk: 1.00pm.
