Entertain the kids with a Farnley walk
Keep the kids entertained with a Farnley Estates walk
There's still a week left of the summer holidays and, like many parents, you're probably running out of ideas and money trying to keep the kids occupied.
If this sounds familiar, then we can help. Farnley Estates walks are free to download from www.farnleyestares.co.uk/walk and come with beneficial side effects. These include:
- Tired but happy children - giving you a peaceful evening when they collapse into bed.
- Healthy glowing faces - sometimes with added mud but kids wash quite easily.
There are some negatives associated with our walks, including:
- No reduction in your finances - there's not even anywhere to spend money on our walks!
- No TVs in sight.
Choose your favourite walk
There are two main walks. The Farnley Full Monty follows a circular route from the Golden Cock in Farnley Tyas, out towards Honley Road, through Molly Carr Wood across to Manor Road and back into the village. There’s also the option to take the path from Molly Carr Wood up to Castle Hill, if you want a more challenging walk.
The second walk is named Le Tour, in honour of the Tour de France Grand Depart. It starts starts at School Wood in the village, goes through Ludhill and out onto Hall Ing Road. Energetic walkers can follow the route through public footpaths at the side of the railway line and out onto Gynn Lane in Honley, if they prefer. The walk returns via Gynn Lane to Hall Ing and up through West Wood, back into Farnley Tyas.
Be safe and responsible
As the Estate is a working farm, with agricultural activities and nesting wildlife at certain times of the year, walkers are asked to act responsibly, follow the countryside code and keep to designated paths. To avoid introducing diseases, such as ash dieback, onto the land, walkers are also asked to take sensible precautions such as cleaning their boots before starting out.
