EXPLORE! South Pennines Park Walk & Ride Festival

WELCOME TO THE WALK & RIDE FESTIVAL 2019 WEBSITE

EVENT CANCELLATION 

 

Due to a lack of bookings the Archaeology and the Roddlesworth Valley event (on Saturday 14/09/2019) has been cancelled.

Please be aware that we have been having serious problems with this website since 2018.  More information on EXPLORE! The South Pennines Park Walk and Ride Festival 2019 can be found on the Pennine Prospects website, our Simplebooklet (mobile/tablet/lap/desktop-friendly) and our South Pennines Facebook page.

This year’s South Pennines Walk & Ride Festival will take place between Saturday 7th September and Sunday 22nd September.

There is a wide range of festival events to help you explore our stunning and diverse landscape, whether you’re on foot, bike or horse.

The festival is the perfect opportunity to explore the wild and wonderful South Pennines Park landscape, its heather-covered moors, steep-sided valleys, canals, reservoirs and packhorse trails. Spanning the Yorkshire/Lancashire border this area has a fascinating history, offering everything from Neolithic stone carvings to world-changing industrial heritage; and many hidden gems. Over the centuries it has inspired artists and writers; and those who visit and those who stay.

You may wish to march across the moorland on one of our strenuous all-day hikes or perhaps meander through the streets of Hebden Bridge to discover the secrets of its industrial past or maybe cycle from Ogden to Otley; whatever your pace or interests the South Pennines has it all.

The South Pennines is a place where you’ll find intense local pride and people who are passionate about the area and want to share what they know...our event guides are no exception. They will be able to guide you through the landscape and share their knowledge.

Watch out for our printed brochure, which will be available from outlets across the South Pennines this summer. Please check  the Pennine Prospects website for any last minute changes.  We will alert you there as this website has been having some serious issues (it is getting old!)

Participants are advised to check the individual event organisation’s website or contacting the event leaders before setting off to confirm times and meeting points and for any last minute changes to the advertised programme.

All the 2019 events can be found on our Simple Booklet using the link below.
