Summary: The Burley Bridge Hike is an annual challenge walk which was devised in 1996 as a fundraiser with the eventual aim of putting a footbridge over the River Wharfe at Burley-in-Wharfedale. I was personally involved in the early days of fundraising and promotion of the campaign for the footbridge. From the start in the popular village of Burley in Wharfedale the hike which includes visiting Rombalds Moor, Ilkley Moor, Addingham High Moor, Bingley Moor and Burley Moor visits Scalebor Park, Hangingstones Road, Cow and Calf Rocks, Rocky Valley, Ilkley Crags, White Wells, Swastika Stone, Noon Stone, Black Hill, Doubler Stones, Holden Gate, High Carr, Leeds and Liverpool Canal, Riddlesden, Crossflatts, Micklethwaite, White Flush, Fenny Shaw, Ashlar Chair, Lanshaw Lad, Twelve Apostles Stone Circle, Great Skirtful of Stones, Craven Hall Hill, Carr Beck and Hag Farm Road.
