“WALKING THE WALLS OF BAILDON”. A Baildon Walkers are Welcome “AUTUMNAL SIXERS” guided walk.


October 22, 2020 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am
Meet at The Potted Meat Stick in centre of Baildon
Mervyn Flecknoe and John Anderson

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.



1. To book, email info@baildonwalkersarewelcome.org giving the following information:
* Title and date of the walk you wish to book on.
* Your name/s, address, telephone number, email address.
* An emergency contact – name and telephone number – that we should contact in case you became ill during the walk.
* Any significant health information that you feel the leader should be aware of (we will treat this information in strict confidence and it will only be shared with the walk leader).

2. Leaders will not be able to give you any personal assistance which would involve close proximity or touch during the walk (except in an emergency), e.g. to cross stiles, or manage slippery slopes, so if you think you might need assistance please bring along a family member (i.e. book 2 places).

3. Please bring with you:
* any medication you might need, including plasters;
* hand santiser;
* water bottle and any snacks.

4. Please remember that, many paths will be stony or muddy (after all the rain we have been having) so please wear walking shoes or boots with non-slip soles.

5. We will let you know quickly if we have been able to reserve a place for you on your chosen walk.

6. If, after having booked, you do not feel well in the days leading up to the walk, or on the day itself, please stay at home and do not join the walk. You can inform us that you are not going to participate by emailing the info@baildonwalkersarewelcome.org email

7. If you arrive at the meet-up point appearing unwell, or without the footwear appropriate to the walk, the Walks Leader may need to ask you not to start the walk.

8. The walks will take place even if it is raining. We will only cancel if the weather is so bad as to be deemed a potential hazard – in which case we will telephone you as early as possible to let you know.
