New Events Added

Posted 27/9/2018

Due to other commitments, it proved impossible to assemble the group's committee for the Oct/Nov/Dec walk planning meeting until 25th September!  Whilst it will take us a few more days to get the finished diary out, given the short notice, we have added the first month's events to the Events page for your perusal.  The rest of the diary will follow in the coming days.

Whernside Walk - Important Information

Posted 25/9/2018

To anyone considering travelling to the Yorkshire Dales for our Whernside Walk.


It is very important that this walk starts punctually, therefore we ask everyone to be on time and assembled at the start point at the stipulated time.

Furthermore, to anyone who is still deciding whether to attend, it is important that DVWG are contacted by Friday September 28th to confirm your attendance. 

We ask that people observe these requests in order to maximise daylight and to ensure that no one is left behind by arriving late or due to our walk leaders not knowing someone is attending.

Please be aware that the mobile phone signal in the Yorkshire Dales is erratic.


Thank you for your co-operation.

Chairman - DVWG

There was an error on the listed start point for yesterday's walk on this site, meaning a couple of walkers went to the wrong place. Although other sources of info (the printed diary, newsletter, Facebook, SMS messages) gave the correct information, I appreciate that many of our participants rely on this site as a central source of information.

Every effort is made to ensure that correct information is distributed but I fell short on this occasion and for this I can only apologise.  To compound matters, as the start point given was about 10 minutes drive from the actual start, the error was not obvious.  It wasn't spotted and brought to my attention until I was stood in the car park at the correct start point, with 15 minutes to the scheduled start, leaving no time for correction.

Thanks to Kasia for bringing it to our attention and also for noting a misdirected link on a future event, which has also now been corrected.

With sincere apologies

Merry Christmas from DVWG

Our final walk of 2017 is now over and what a year it has been with DVWG walking over 6,100 miles in 2017.

All that remains is to thank everyone who walked with DVWG this year and helped to organise our events and to wish everyone a merry Christmas and a wonderful new year. We hope to see you all walking with us in 2018.
