The UK annual holiday takes place in June. Members travel by
coach and accommodation will be half or full board in a hotel. The
locations are varied and reflect the desire to provide a balance for
all the different levels of walking in the group. The club tries to
put on walks to suit easier, medium and harder levels, but it is
optional whether a member joins a led walk or chooses to do their own
The holidays are good value. The price depends on the location and what the club has been able to negotiate. In recent years the cost has ranged between £350 and £600 for half or full board including transport. The coach is available during the week to transport members to and from the walks.
There is a great atmosphere and members often arrange their own social activities during the week.
In recent years the club has been to the Isle of Man, Donegal in Ireland, Callandar in Scotland, Criccieth in North Wales.
Abroad Annual Holiday. We now offer a walking holiday in Europe in September/ October.
Members often get together to organise their own trips in smaller groups. In recent times there have been holidays in the Dolomites, Tenerife and Malta.
Bradford Walking is the name we use for our group on the internet. We
are an established walking group also known as Bradford CHA and we
celebrated our centenary in 2003.
We were initially part of the larger CHA (Countrywide Holidays Association) which was created to provide opportunities for working people to enjoy the countryside and walking. Bradford CHA has been a very successful organisation providing walking and social opportunities for people from all walks of life for over 100 years.
We still try and push the boundaries in what we offer in the way of walking, so that those who are fit and able can still undertake some very challenging walks, often in areas where there are no paths and sometimes involving some scrambling. But we cater for all walkers. If you want a good day out on Sunday you can join our B walks which are moderate in difficulty and we often offer C walks which are more leisurely and shorter.
The club has a hard working committee dedicated to keeping things running smoothly by organising the walking programme, transport, holidays, social events, finance and advertising. A newsletter is published every quarter. This has articles and information about forthcoming events, holidays
We offer walks for all abilities and interests on Saturdays and Sundays.
Our members live in Bradford, the Airevalley and all surrounding areas.
