Knaresborough AutumnFest 2019

Saturday 28th September & Sunday 29th September

A celebration of our Town:

its natural beauty, its long history, its talented people and vibrant community.

Saturday 28th September

Leaving Knaresborough Castle at 10.15 & 14.15

This is a 4-mile circular walk which is open to visitors and Take a Hike/Ramblers members.

After pausing to take a look at the well-known view from the castle, we will head down the steps to Waterside which we follow towards the Half Moon. We cross the River Nidd and then walk parallel to it, along Spitalcroft, before heading up through trees ad crossing a field to the edge of Birkham Wood. We follow the edge of the wood to emerge at the roadside near St James Retail Park. We cross back over the River Nidd and head along Abbey Road, pausing to take a look at St Robert’s Cave and a couple of other landmarks before heading back up to the Castle grounds where the walk will finish.

There are plenty of pub/cafe/tearoom options in the Town Centre and on Waterside if you are in need of refreshment after the walk.

Fancy a peaceful walk on Sunday morning 29th September 2019?
