Skipton Craven Walkers

About Us

We are a volunteer-run scheme and we lead Walking for Health walks on Mondays (excluding Bank Holidays) at 2pm meeting at  Freddie Trueman Statue, Canal Basin, Skipton off Coach Street Car Park.  Monday walks are in Skipton and vary in length; most weeks there is a shorter and a longer walk.

Our free Walking for Health walks are on Mondays at 2pm from Freddie Truman statue at the Canal Basin (except Bank Hols  and a few other dates e.g. AGM).  We walk around Skipton town and many of our walkers go for a chat over a cuppa afterwards.  Children are welcome on all our walks if accompanied by a responsible adult. Dogs are not allowed. If you have not walked with us before you will need to fill in a WfH Health Questionnaire before you start, so please arrive in good time. 

Our Events

Our walks are every Monday at 2pm.

Stretchers (Grade 2, 50-90 mins, 2-3 miles) at a steady pace.  Weekly.

Starters (Grade 1, 20-30 mins) at a slower pace for those with limited ability to walk. Some walks suitable for pushchair or wheelchair, please contact us in advance. 2nd Monday of the month.

Strollers (either Grade 1 or Grade 2,  30 mins - 50 mins depending on participants) for those with limited time or lower ability to walk.  Some walks suitable for pushchair or wheelchair, please contact us in advance.  Weekly.

Striders (Grade 3, 60-90 mins, 3-4 miles).  Stiles possible, slopes very probable, this is for those who are moderately fit.  Runs only occasionally, when turnout, weather and leader availability allow.

We mainly use walks from our booklet "24 Walks for Health in Skipton" which includes some routes suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs.  It is supported by Craven District Council and was published with grants from Skipton Rotary, Skipton Town Council and the Temperance Hall Fund.  Sales of the booklet finance our group.  Please contact us by phone or email for more details.
