Baildon Walkers are Welcome
Baildon Walkers are Welcome has a committee of 8 people, who find Wesleys a great place to hold our meetings, approximately 5 times a year.
Baildon was awarded Walkers are Welcome status in 2013, thanks to its fantastic countryside location and abundance of routes for walkers of all abilities. Since Baildon was awarded the designation of a Walkers are Welcome town, members of the Baildon Walkers are Welcome group have been busy promoting and encouraging walking in the lovely countryside around Baildon.
The aims of the national Walkers are Welcome Scheme are to encourage and support towns and villages to:
- Be attractive destinations for walkers with top quality information on local walks
- Offer local people and visitors excellent walking opportunities within their areas
- Ensure that footpaths and facilities for walkers are maintained, improved and well signposted
- Contribute to local tourism plans and regeneration strategies
- Promote the health benefits of walking and increase participation
- Encourage the use of public transport.
