The Meltham Walkers are Welcome group was formed in the early months of 2013. Our aim is to promote the area as a special area for walkers, cyclists, runners, and all those who to come and enjoy highlighted routes and amenities the village has to offer.
We will be linking up with the national ‘Walkers are Welcome’ organisation, which consists of a large number of local autonomous groups, each working to promote their local areas. Overall we hope that the group will benefit residents, local businesses and visitors to the Meltham area.
At this early stage, the group meets on a monthly basis, and we have been busy setting up this website, identifying and planning walking routes, and preparing some of these routes for publication. Over the next year we hope to develop a wider supporters network, and organise a number of ‘activity’ events to help improve and promote the footpaths and bridleways around Meltham. If you are interested in helping to organise or just occasionally come out and work on a project, please let us know. You can do this by using the contact form on this website.
