Go down the woods for Olympic walk
Walkers are being urged to take part in an Olympic themed family walk through Skipton Castle Woods on Sunday.
Organised by High Corn Mill and the Woodland Trust, the walk will raise money for Skipton in Bloom.
Walkers, and well behaved dogs, will take a route of almost two miles through the woods.
And for younger walkers, there will be the added interest of an Olympic trail hunt with sporting clues scattered along the way.
There will also be the opportunity to visit the mill’s historical innovation zone, featuring the specially commissioned 15kw water turbine.
Andrew Mear, owner of High Corn Mill, said not everyone was aware of the castle woods and the Medieval corn mill.
“With the Olympics with us, we want to encourage families to put on their walking shoes and take part - all in the name of a very worthwhile cause.”
The walk will start at 10.30am from the courtyard at High Corn Mill, in Chapel Hill, with last registration at 2pm.
All those taking part will be asked for a donation of £2 per person or £5 for a family of four.
Dogs on leads are welcome.
