Walk: Wentworth's Follies : Yorkshire

Hosting By


This event is no longer available.

We will walk around the attractive area of Wentworth, which was home to the Fitzwilliams, the Marquess of Rockingham. They made their fortune from early coal mining and built the impressive Wentworth Woodhouse stately home (it has the longest frontage of any in Britain).

On the walk we expect to pass the house itself (currently heavily scaffolded), the Doric Temple, Mausoleum, Hoober Stand (if open, for a small fee, you can ascend to the top for the view, but we don't expect that to be possible today), and Needles Eye.

Distance: around 6 miles

Due to Covid restrictions we will not be able to gather at the pub or cafe so please bring a drink and packed lunch if you wish.

Do not attend if you have virus symptoms.

We must all observe the social distancing regulations. Please do not book unless you are prepared to keep a two metre distance from other walkers. We are not requiring members to wear face coverings, but you are welcome to do so if that makes you feel more comfortable. We advise that you bring gloves and hand sanitiser. Do not share food or drink or equipment such as walking poles with other walkers outside your household or bubble.

The (rather dark) photo shows us walking on 70 Acre Hill on Tuesday evening. We got great views of the lightning flashing all around Sheffield, but we managed to stay almost completely dry! The journey home was interesting though!

We've been out walking again and even managed an outdoor meal after our walks on Saturday and Sunday. The photo shows us in our pod at Holmfield Arms in Wakefield after exploring the park. Look out for more walks and outdoor meals on our event list
