Guides to Skipton

We lead occasional guided walks (see News) and may be able to tailor one for your group. If you are exploring on your own you may find these walks below of interest.

In 2016 we republished our leaflet A Guide to Ginnels and Yards and published a new Timeline of Skipton leaflet covering 57 High Street buildings. Both available for £1 each from Tourist Information in Skipton or at Society meetings.  Proceeds will be used to reprint our guide to Middle Row buildings.

Downloadable self-guided walks:

Education and Routeways goes past 7 old schools where children in the town were taught until the 20th century, also passing through some ancient greenspaces and travel routes.  60-70 minutes.

Castle and Industry goes behind the Castle to look at the surprisingly industrial history of this little corner of Skipton. 30-40 minutes.
