Launch of the Aislabie Walk

The walk was officially launched on Monday 16th April 2012

The sun shone for the launch of the Aislabie Walk. After an introductory talk by Paul Mosley, of the Woodland Trust, and Mark Reid, author of the walk, the gathered party set off to complete a 3 mile section of the route through Hackfall.

The launch was attended by representatives of:

As well as:

  • The Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress of Ripon
  • Andy Shipley editor of Walking on the Web
  • Phil Holden of Caravanwise supporters of this site
  • and of course Mark Reid of the Inn Way Walking Books and the very well behaved Elvis

Lunch was very generously provided by the National Trust and a very nice spread was laid out by The Crown Inn at Grewelthorpe, washed down by an excellent pint of Ringwood Bitter.

Production of the route guide was supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).

    My vote goes to the Mayor & Mayoress of Ripon who did the Hackfall walk in dignified bling!
    Well done to Hackfall Officer (Paul Mosley)managing to keep all the group together and safely back to Crown Inn.
