Wetherby Walking for Health
A great opportunity to get out into the fresh air and meet new people. Wetherby Walking for Health walks are lead by trained volunteers. We walk every week to help you establish a routine and are ideal for beginners. There is no need to book, just turn up.
We meet every Wednesday at 10.00am. The meeting place is outside Wetherby Methodist Church, Bank Street. Walks vary from 30 to 60 minutes. After the walks we will use the Methodist Cafe for refreshments.
We have a wide variety of local walks. We mainly walk from The Methodist Church but occasionally we will catch a bus and walk back to Bank Street. The walks vary in length and terrain. We do not decide which walk we are going to do until we meet. Our decission will depend upon who has joined us and what the weather conditions are like.

A sample of the walks on offer :
Lime Tree Walk This walk can be 30 minutes or can be extended to 45 minutes. It is a pretty walk, mainly on pavement or good footpaths.
The Railway Triangle - this is a 45 minute walk which keeps to well maintained footpaths and follows three sections of the disused railway.
The Ings - The iconic Wetherby walk. It takes 60 minutes. This walk can be muddy in places so we only choose it after a period of dry weather. It involves crossing the River Wharfe on the foot brigde and following the river to the Leisure Centre.
Spofforth Hill Walk This walk starts with a short bus ride - bring your bus pass if you have one. From the top of Spofforth Hill we use footpaths to get us onto the railway footpath then back to the Town Centre. The walk is about 45 minutes and can be muddy - so definatly a dry weather walk.
Waterwheel and Jubilee Gardens This is our shortest walk 20 - 30 minutes. It is all on pavement. It involves a visit to the waterwheel on The River Wharfe and a visit to Jubilee Gardens. This is a great walk if the weather is wet as it can easily be shortened.
