Moorland walk, ascent of 303 metres

This is an 8 mile linear walk from Steeton to Ilkley, returning by train. This walk traverses the western side of Rombalds Moor from Airedale to Wharfedale passing through pleasant pastoral scenery before finishing on a high route offering expansive views of the southern edge of the Yorkshire Dales. It also takes you past the Doubler Stones - rocks weirdly shaped by the elements, and other well known rocky landmarks. Rombalds/Ilkley Moor is well known for its cup and ring and other ancient rock art. We will finish the walk in Ilkley, a former spa town, now known for its interesting shops and cafes where we will have a drink and/or something to eat before catching the train back to Steeton or Bradford or Leeds. 

We are delighted that this walk is part of Leeds Pride LGBT Sport Fringe Festival. As a festival activity the walk is an inclusive event and we are being joined by members of 'The Hills Have Gays' - a Leeds-based LGBT friendly walking and social activity group, and 'Leeds Girls Can' - an inclusive woman's activity group. Both of these groups will have their own event leaders.
