West Yorkshire event

Colin Pitts, FCD writes:

I am leading a Bradford Countryside Service 3 mile guided walk from Darwin Gardens near Wells Road car park, Ilkley on Wednesday October 28th at 11am. There are some rough paths and steep sections for which boots are essential. Walkers should also bring waterproofs and a drink together with a snack/packed lunch.

We shall be passing Wells House, White Wells and North House with a number of rests stops during which I shall be attempting a very brief bio of Charles Darwin with short readings from some of the letters written from (and sent to) Ilkley.

I can vouch from personal experience (as could Darwin, who seriously sprained his ankle when visiting White Wells) that proper walking boots are indeed essential.

“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
