About the Walk

The walk will commence at 9.30am, and our meeting point will be the Bolton Abbey car park. This will be a circular walk. We’ll set off from near the Priory Church, taking the time to explore the Augustinian priory ruins, in their riverside setting, before going on to cross several bridges over the Wharfe.

We’ll then commence our journey through Strid Wood. This majestic wood is home to a myriad of wildlife including roe deer, otters, kingfisher and greater spotted woodpecker. Here, we’ll also see one of the largest remnants of sessile oak trees in the Yorkshire Dales.

Finally our route will take us across Barden Bridge before returning down the other side of the Wharf, and back to where we started.

Fundraising Target & Fees

There is a registration fee of £10 for every participant, which gets you a free IKCA T-Shirt! We have a minimum fundraising target of £50, however we do encourage participants set their own target, above this minimum, to support cancer patients at Shaukat Khanum Hospital. The closing date for registration is the 25th of March 2022.
