Skelton History Group Walk – Skelton Park and Shaft mines

Monday 9th September – (11) Skelton Park and Shaft mines

Distance: 4½ miles; Ascent 500ft; Duration: 4½-5 hours

Meet at 10:30am at Skelton Methodist Community Church, Castle Grange, Skelton Green. Today, we will be walking from Skelton Green along a permissive footpath that would have been used by the ironstone miners to get to and from their place of work.

A charge of £2 per person will be made on each walk to offset the costs of Insurance. Please wear appropriate footwear and have clothing suitable for the likely weather conditions on that day. On the longer walks, it is suggested that you bring food and drink as we usually stop between midday and 1:00pm for a lunch break.
