Over three hundred walkers took part in the Boroughbridge Walkers are Welcome Easter Walking Festival.
Under brilliant blue skies and lovely sunshine with a backdrop of beautiful spring flowers, walkers from across the country saw the Boroughbridge area at its best.
Ever popular, was the Ghost Walk and the Myton Battle Walk with its fantastic afternoon tea to finish the day.
New this year was a walk around Minskip using an Iron Age track towards Arkendale and the seventeen mile Round River walk led by John Helliwell which attracted eight walkers. This walk went down stream from Boroughbridge to Aldwark bridge returning via Myton on the Swale and the north Bank of the River Ure. John is now working on a longer route going upstream which would include a visit to Ripon Cathedral. Watch this space for further details.
Finally, a big thank you must go to all the Walk leaders, helpers and the sponsors who made The Walking Festival such a successful event.
