The Rotary Club of Halifax are once again hosting their annual community walk and operation of the Castle Carr Fountains and would be delighted if you could join them for this spectacular event and help to raise funds for charitable activities in the Town.
The guided walk will commence near the Cat I’th Well pub, Wainstalls Lane at 12 noon and is a 2.5 mile route to the fountains. There is ample car parking in a nearby field so PLEASE do not park on the roadside or on private property, the car park will be marshalled to assist you.
Please ensure that you wear suitable footwear if taking part as the surface may be uneven and damp/wet. There is a second parking site approximately one mile away above the fountains site for the less energetic. This can be accessed by following Castle Carr Road from Wainstalls to the site where there will be marshalls to assist you.
The fountains will be activated at approximately 2pm
If you use “what three words” then enter home.mops.shirtless for the long walk start point and bliss.flame.dumplings for the one nearer the fountains.
Please note that the final access to the fountains site is by foot down a rough track that is not suitable for wheelchairs or people with mobility issues . We are sorry if this affects you but we have no control over this.
Dogs are welcome but must be on a lead and under close control. Photography is encouraged but please note that the use of drones is strictly prohibited.
As always we are grateful to the Scholefield family who farm the private area around the fountains and allow access to the land and to Yorkshire Water who maintain the fountains and their water supply. Please respect the land by taking your rubbish home.
There is no mobile phone signal in the area so please print your ticket, or save a version to your phone, that you can show to the marshals
And lastly – don’t forget your picnic!
Tickets from £11.55
