Forthcoming events

Winter Walk – January 19th,  10:45,   Fulford to Bishopthorpe/Naburn (with optional return)

Bernard Turgoose writes:   “We will meet at The Millennium Bridge (Bishopthorpe road side) at 10.45.Suggested parking either on Hospital Fields Road off Fulford road or on Bishopthorpe road near the old Terrys factory. Walk along the riverbank to Bishopthorpe and then on to Naburn, where we will stop for lunch at the Marina cafe called the Waterfront at York Marina. After lunch the option is then to walk to the Designer Outlet and pick up the bus 415 back into York , or for those who have walked enough bus 42 at 2.17 from outside the Marina. Distance to the Marina is just over four miles and then a further mile to the Outlet. There is no climbing a relatively flat walk but I would suggest that walking boots or shoes are essential, especially if it has rained during the previous few days, Can those intending to join us please advise me direct by email on
