Boroughbridge say “Here we go again”
Plans are well in hand for the Boroughbridge Easter Walking Festival to be held this year from April 10th to 13th 2020.
This year Boroughbridge are celebrating the 200 years the Bronte family have been connected with Yorkshire by following in the footsteps of Bramwell Bronte who was tutor for the Robinson family at Ouseburn hall.
With the old favourites of the Ghost walk, Town Tour and Afternoon Tea walk not being forgotten they have two new walks, the Soundmarks Trail , involving the downloading of podcasts to mobile devices, where Art, Archaeology and Sound come together to reveal the ancient landscape of Roman Aldborough and a visit to Whixley and Allerton Mauleverer the home of “the Grand Old Duke of York” of marching fame.
For the more adventurous the Striders group are leading two sixteen mile routes up and down the River Ure with a possible chance during the former to visit Ripon Cathedral. Further information will be available shortly at boroughbridgewalks.org.uk.
