The concept, realisation, and legacy of The Dales Way, Colin Speakman

An experienced and popular speaker, Colin Speakman will tell us how the Dales Way was created 55 years ago.  The 1968 Countryside Act was seen as a great opportunity for the implementation of new routes and the result was a wonderful walk that runs from Ilkley to the shores of Lake Windermere at Bowness, first walked in 1969.  This is one of the oldest and most popular long-distance walks in the country and one of the most beautiful.  Cost £10 member, £12 non-member.
