West Yorks, United Kingdom (PressExposure) August 12, 2009 -- Hebden Bridge in the beautiful South Pennines is the first place in Britain to hold the âWalkers Are Welcomeâ accolade.
The area has plenty of enjoyable, pleasant walks to suit all tastes and these are being celebrated during the townâs Walkers Are Welcome Weekend which takes place from 12 â 13 September 2009.
The weekend sees 30 different walks, the majority of them free, taking place to suit all ages and abilities, along with illustrated talks and a walkersâ pub quiz.
