Welcome to the website of the West Yorkshire LDWA.

Our Group was founded in 1976 and is a friendly, active local walking group.
We have a fine selection of social walks throughout the year, most are in the Yorkshire Dales, West Yorkshire and North Yorkshire, though we occasionally stray further afield.

On most of our walks, unless it says otherwise in the programme, you should bring food and drink for lunch and snacks. If the leader has planned for the group to eat lunch in a pub this will be clearly stated in the programme.

You will find our walks programme on this website, and it’s also published in the LDWA national magazine, “Strider”.



Thanks to all those who took part in the 2019 One Foot in the Gargrave challenge walk. Hope you all enjoyed the day and look forward to seeing you all next year.

Sad News:

It is with great sadness that we have to report a fatality on a recent North Yorkshire LDWA social walk. Regrettably Chris Hopkins, a guest from East Lancashire LDWA, collapsed during the walk and was subsequently pronounced dead by the Emergency Services.
Whilst Chris wasn't a member of the West Yorkshire Group he walked with us often and had many friends within the group.
The funeral will be held on Tuesday 10th December at 10.30am at Saint Anne's Church, High Street, Chapeltown, Bolton, BL7 0ER.
