Snaith and Cowick Walking Group

Formed 2007

Official Calendar


The Snaith and Cowick Walking Group was formed on 2007 to offer guided walks  on Tuesdays.

Snaith’s location on the Trans Pennine Trail, the very popular Heritage Walks and the fact that Snaith is a Walkers are Welcome town, have all contributed to an increase in walking in the area.

From January 2017 there will be a short guided walk EVERY TUESDAY, starting at Snaith Station FREE Car Park at 10am.
In addition, there will be a long walk on the third Thursday of every month. 

The group welcomes new walkers and anyone can join any of the walks on offer. 
No need to book – just turn up. Unfortunately we cannot accept dogs as we may be walking where cattle are present. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

SPECIAL WALKS. We are often asked to arrange and lead walks for groups at a day and time to suit them. If you would like us to arrange a walk for your group, please contact one of the Group Leaders
