2019 Annual Get-Together 12-13th October
The next Walkers are Welcome Annual Get-Together will be held in Kirkby Stephen, Cumbria. This small old market town with its Conservation Area is surrounded by the spectacular countryside of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the new Westmorland Dales extension to the Yorkshire Dales National Park. You can enjoy peaceful river walks, popular disused railways and explore ancient lanes or climb nearby fells and moorland with open access and outstanding views. The town’s Market Street provides independent shops, cafe’s, pubs and accommodation. The residents love their quirky projects and arts events that bring added vitality.
Whilst the north might seem a long way to come, there are easy motorway links or mainline railways including the famous Settle-Carlisle railway with the traffic easing and landscape unfolding as you near your destination. We hope you will be able to visit us and stay a while. We assure you that the welcome will be warm. further information to follow.
