Welcome to the Friends of DalesRail website.
We are a walking society, who specialise in organising and
leading guided walks for the general public. Most of these
walks use railways in the Yorkshire Pennines; this means that
we can easily do linear walks.
Our core activity is our programme of guided walks from the
Settle-Carlisle railway line, but we also use several other
of the local railway lines. These walks are held on weekends
and usually range from 7 to 18 miles, so there is something
Our guided walks are open to everyone and we warmly invite
you to join us on our excursions into the Pennine countryside.
The following pages of this website give you more information
about all our activities. Please feel free to join us on any
of our Walks,
but please be sensible and choose a level of walk at which
you feel comfortable.
