BE INFORMED

Our speaker meetings

There are subjects to interest everyone ranging from The Mills of Nidderdale and The Railway of Scar House through to Grouse Moors around Middlesmoor and My Life in Music at Batley Variety Club! One of the joys is coming along to all of the meetings and being surprised to discover new interests. The meetings are regularly attended by upwards of 60 people – we’d be delighted if you joined us.

EXPLORE THE LANDSCAPE

Our social walks

Join our welcoming group to explore the rich surroundings of Nidderdale. Exercise, education and a fun few hours – what better way to enjoy Nidderdale! The walks are not too taxing, usually no more than around 5 miles.
