A new book called Walks without Stiles features no fewer than 32 walks in the Yorkshire and Cumbria dales, which are accessible to electric wheelchair users. ("Walks"? Yes, that's what the authors call them, and why not?)
We think this is a brilliant idea for a book, and if we can stock it in Richmond Information Centre we surely will. Meanwhile, you can download a few of the walks:
For all-terrain chairs:
For more modest electric wheelchairs, and manual chairs with a powered wheel.
Not in the book, but let's not forget the classic Easby Loop, starting from Richmond's old Station, and following the River Swale to Easby Abbey. The optional return route on a smooth lane offers fine views of Richmond Castle.
Until we can stock Walks without Stiles you can only buy the book for £12.10 (inc. UK postage) at where2walk.co.uk.
Welcome to Richmond Information Centre's website, the best source of information on this wonderful town. Take a look round!
