VISIT Easingwold- Yorkshire at its best

 


Hambleton Strollers enjoying the healthy fresh air! Hambleton Strollers organise led walks which start from doctors' surgeries, Leisure Centres and other central points in the six main towns of Hambleton District - in Northallerton, Stokesley, Thirsk, Bedale, Easingwold and Great Ayton plus some nearby villages.

 

 Approved by Health Professionals!

Here in Easingwold, the existing members would like to encourage anyone to join the walks, but we especially welcome these groups of people:  

  • The over 50s
  • Those with health risks due to inactive lifestyles, and especially those at risk of heart disease
  • Those recovering from health problems and needing simple exercise
  • And those who would just like some company to make walking and exercise a more enjoyable social activity

Our walks are usually less than an hour and are on good level footpaths around the towns and on surrounding field paths when weather conditions allow. There may be small gradients, and the occasional stile (though always announced at the start). The walks are relaxed and friendly, but moving at a pace brisk enough for individuals to feel an increased heart rate and faster breathing. We always suggest that walkers continue to exercise more frequently as well - on their own or with friends.

Most walks start at 10.30 am. Many outings offer opportunities for refreshments afterwards. Come and join us when you are in the area.

It's a fact

Sqdn Ldr. Jack Currie was a famous WW2 bomber pilot who lived in our area. Some time after leaving the RAF he got a job as an instructor with the Home Office Defence School situated at Hawk Hills, Easingwold. During these post war years he decided to write his memoirs of his wartime experience as a pilot of a Lancaster Bomber. This book had the title of \"Lancaster Target\" which became very popular and sold in the thousands. He wrote this book whilst visiting the George Hotel in Easingwold in the evening whilst enjoying a pint. Sadly he died much too soon and is now at laid at rest in Easingwold church cemetery where one can view his unusual gravestone which mentions the fact that he was a famous wartime pilot and author. His funeral service was attended by hundreds of people, including the members of the BBC who produced a film of him being interviewed in respect of his wartime period when he was stationed at Wickenby in Lincolnshire.
