Join us for a wonderful Social Hike to Fairburn.

September 7, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 2:30 pm


Another in the fantastic series of walks lead by Society member, Nicky Busby. Join Nicky and a friendly crowd to discover a stunning part of Yorkshire.


This lovely walk will take us through RSPB Fairburn Ings where we will stop at the kingfisher viewing area and then along a shady wooded area by the River Aire before reaching the pretty village of Fairburn. We will then walk through fields towards Ledsham where we will visit the oldest church in West Yorkshire before stopping for refreshments and a light lunch at the Chequers pub. We will return to the car park via Newfield Lane and Ledsham Woods.


Meeting Point: RSPB Fairburn Ings Visitor Centre car park WF10 2BH (Parking charge £4)

Distance: 5 miles

Start Time: 10.30am.

We aim to be back at the car park at approximately 2.30pm.

Dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead in the RSPB reserve.

Due to some stiles/kissing gates the walk is not suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs.
