Walking Club

Christmas Walk and Lunch 2nd December 2018

Killinghall Harrogate with Xmas lunch at The Knox

The Walk

The walk, organised by Carol Rutherford and Mick Morby, will be of easy grade and tailored to the weather on the day, taking us through country lanes and fields to Killinghall and likely to be back along the disused railway line, now a “Greenway” that takes us over the stunning viaduct by Bilton Beck Wood a “Site of Importance to Nature Conservation (SINC)”.  Weather and mud levels will determine the length of the walk which will be between 5.5 and 6.5 miles.

Time and place

We meet in the Car Park of The Knox Arms, Knox Lane, Harrogate HG1 3AP where we can leave our cars and will be returning for lunch. Meet at 10:15 for a 10:30am start. There are toilet facilities in the pub. If you want to come for lunch only the tables are booked for 13:45pm.

Travel

If you would like a lift on a petrol sharing basis, please contact the organisers. We will let you know if someone is travelling from your area.

There are public transport options to this walk:

  • The no 36 Transdev Leeds to Ripon bus. These run every 30mins to and from Leeds via Harrogate bus station. Transfer to the 2b bus below. Good departure times from Leeds are 0815 and 0835. Alternately, you could catch a train and transfer to the 2b bus. The 0859 train service from platform 1a would be good.
  • 2B buses from Harrogate bus station (Stand 4) stop on Knox Lane adjacent to the pub. Buses run every 30 minutes up to early evening. It takes around 20 minutes, traffic permitting. The 0940 service is perfect for a good arrival time.

Clothing

It will be cold and also muddy in places. Stout shoes or walking boots, several layers of clothing and as always wet weather protection may be needed.

The Pub

The Knox is a converted a 300 year old former farm house and farm building in a quiet suburb, on the fringe of Harrogate. It is a very attractive ‘Local Community Pub and is well known for its home cooked food. The Christmas Meal menu is attached, 2 courses for £16.95, 3 for £19.95. Let us know your selections. We will need a £5 deposit per person when booking. Thank you.

Please send your deposit (£5 per person) Mr M. Morby, 16 Fieldway, Harrogate. HG1 3JZ.

The closing date for the meal reservations is 17 November 2017. Contact me for information concerning any reservations requests beyond the closing date.

There will be a £5 subsidy for members of the Walking Club.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

The Macmillan Coffee Morning and subsequent events raised a total of £1821.67 which is a record for us!

Well done and thanks to all those involved. Especially to Simon Jarrold who puts so much effort into these events, and also all the bakers and contributors.

The money we have raised will not only go to meet the medical needs of people affected by cancer. Macmillan Cancer Support also assist people with the emotional, social and practical impacts that cancer can have on them.
