Plans are coming together for the Annual Boroughbridge Easter Walking Festival.
Taking place on 14th to 17th April 2022, although a slightly reduced programme, it will include The Battle of Boroughbridge Tour in commemoration of 700 years since the battle took place.
The Northern Earls took up against King Edward in 1322, this lead to the demise of The Duke of Lancaster among others. The Duke was taken out of sanctuary from St James Church and after trial at York was hung drawn and quartered at his own castle in Pontefract.
Other walks planned are the Fifteen mile Round River Walk, the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust Staveley Nature Reserve Walk and the Bronte 200 a walk at Ouseburn, celebrating 200 years of the Bronte family connection with the area.
