19 June 2022 - Train walk changes on Saturday 25 June (updated item)

Due to planned industrial action on the railways, both walks on this date have now been changed.


This will now be a 9 mile walk from Shelf to Bingley via Queensbury, Thornton and Shay Gate. The walk will start from the arrival of the 508 bus which leaves Leeds City Square Park Row at 08.45 and arrives at Shelf Village Hall at 09.48. There are frequent buses from Bradford Interchange to Odsal Top, where the 508 service to Shelf Village Hall can be caught.

To return after the walk, the 60 bus route goes from Bingley to Leeds and is a half hourly service. The 662 and 622 bus routes go through Bingley to Bradford Interchange with 4 buses per hour.


This will now be a 6-7 mile walk from Harewood to Bramhope via the Ebor Way. Please catch the number 36 bus at 09.55 from Leeds to the Harewood Arms. You can meet your leaders there or at the Muddy Boots cafe at 10.30. The return journey to Leeds is on the X84 bus, which is a half hourly service.

1 December 2021 - Train Walks Update

As there is still a degree of uncertainty, the committee has decided not to publish a new printed Train Walks leaflet for the six month period from January to June 2022. The walks programme for next year is still being finalised and walks for the remainder of January 2022 will be posted on this website in due course. A full list of walks from February to June 2022 will be issued with the next members' newsletter, which is planned to be published in late January.
