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”.

The Ulfkil Stride was for many years the West Yorkshire Group’ premier challenge event over the fells of Upper Wharfedale.
With all that is going on in the world at the moment, West Yorkshire LDWA Group have resurrected this challenge as an Anytime Challenge.

Please note this is an entirely different event to the Ulfkil Stride Open Challenge.

What3Words is a really simple way to talk about location.
It has divided the world into a grid of 3m x 3m squares and assigned each one a unique 3 word address.
It means anyone can accurately find any location and share it more quickly, easily and with less ambiguity than any other system.

The service can be used via the free mobile app or online map.
