Parish Greens promote local walks during Covid 19 crisis
Councillor David Knight
Kirkburton Parish Green Councillors David Knight and Clare Walters are promoting 10 local walking routes around the Parish. The Kirkburton Parish Walks maps were first produced around 6 years ago and feature 10 walks around the villages of Kirkburton. For added interest the maps have local photographs, illustrations and poems to keep young children entertained.
Along each of the 10 routes is a stone waymarker sculpted by former Parish Councillor and Shepley resident Dave Bradbury.
Councillor David Knight said,
“It’s so important to avoid unnecessary trips to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. We have all heard the stories of people driving miles to the Lake District and the Dales against official advice.
Councillor Clare Walters said,

"Having local walks to enjoy from your doorstep means people can get their daily exercise without having to travel2
These 10 routes take you through scenic countryside and introduce local landmarks and historic characters.
