BAILDON PEACE WALK (WW1). A BAILDON WaW SECOND SATURDAY GUIDED WALK @ Meet at Peace Garden near Baildon Community Link.

Please note this walk starts from the Peace Garden near Baildon Community Link on Cliffe Avenue (rather than our usual starting point of the Potted Meat Stick)  for a short walk around Baildon sites with wartime connections to mark the centenary of the end of hostilities of the First World War on November 11th 1918.

This circular walk is “a walk and talk experience” for Remembrance weekend, led by Eddie Nash, Mike Lawson and Malcolm Leyland. The route will be from the Peace Garden near the Baildon Community Link Centre, to the War Memorial in Hallfield Drive, St Johns Church, up Northgate and onto the Moors, past the rifle ranges and Searchlight stations and then to Tong Park Cenotaph via Strawberry Fields and back into Baildon centre to finish.

This walk is run in conjunction with the Friends of Bracken Hall.

Date;                          Saturday 10th November 2018

Difficulty;                   Moderate

Mileage;                     3 miles – 4.5km

No packed lunch needed.   Please come dressed for all weathers and in walking boots or shoes with a good grip. Wellington boots recommended for children. Bring water to drink. Our Walks Leaders are not necessarily first aid trained, so please bring any medication or minor first aid equipment with you, plus water to drink and any snacks you may wish to nibble en route.  Sorry – we cannot accept dogs (except assistance dogs) on our guided walks.
