Last Club Walks - 13th September 2020

Boghoppers re-boot: 13th September

On Sunday the 13th September we had our first walks since lockdown.  22 Boghoppers went on 5 separate walks and enjoyed some perfect walking weather.  Many thanks to the five leaders that made the walks possible-

A Walks: Debbie Johnston, Shadwell.   Claire Snowden, Aberford.  John Sykes, Drax

B Walks: Dina  Dixon, Micklefield.  Carol Parkinson, Fairburn Ings.

Our next walks will be on Sunday 4th October.  If you have not already requested a place on one of the walks please contact John Penrose as soon as possible (

Pictures from the walks are on the "Past Walks" webpage.

Walk... Fairburn to Ledsham          (6.8 miles)

 Four members of the Sherburn Boghoppers met up for a walk led by Carol & Milece.

The weather was good from the start and we all set off feeling happy and eager to get walking together again.

We all managed to park on the roadside above the visitor centre avoiding the 4 parking fees. 

We started walking along Newfield Lane a track through woodland and leading on to fields. We eventually reached the village of Ledsham and admired the Church standing proud since being built in the 8th. Century. Also noticing the old orphanage which has been converted into flats, and the old school house.

We took a coffee break after spotting a table and chairs by the roadside near the Chequers Inn then continued our walk across fields over stiles and through kissing gates back to Fairburn. 

We turned down Cut road and followed the river bank trail pausing at the end to have our lunch.

When suitably refreshed we continued extending our walk a further 1.8 miles on a circular route along the coal tip trail and back to the car park.

Picture from the walk led by Dina are available on the Past Walks Page.









Remember - So that Jean can order the right size coach, please let her know early in the week, Friday at the latest before the walk if you intend to travel either from Sherburn, or to be picked up on the way.
