“WALKING THE WALLS OF BAILDON”. A Baildon Walkers are Welcome “AUTUMNAL SIXERS” guided walk. @ Meet at The Potted Meat Stick in centre of Baildon
Oct 22 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

No, this is not an invitation to walk the walls of York. It is an opportunity  to join John Anderson to interpret and speculate on  the fascinating stone walls of Baildon.

This guided walk should last up to 90 minutes and will be led for Baildon WaW by Mervyn Flecknoe.

The walk will go from the  the potted meat stick, up Hall Cliffe, turn left along Holden Lane, keep straight on past the cricket and rugby pitches, down the little steps towards Moorside Lane, turn left along the moor wall behind the houses, turn left down Moorgate, look at High Fold and the platinum-award toilet walls and end at the potted meat stick. It is about  a mile in length and has approximately nine steps (on the path from the rugby pitch down to  Moorside Lane).

Participants would need strong shoes or boots since the section along the moor wall behind the houses is muddy – but flat. There are no stiles to negotiate.
