The A.J. Brown Memorial Trail Around Burley-in-Wharfedale District.
The A.J. Brown Memorial Trail follows a 'figure of eight' route of about 6 miles (10 km) around the local Burley-in-Wharfedale district, which includes parts of Burley and Burley Woodhead and the edge of Burley Moor, as well as a section down to the River Wharfe.
Along the way places of interest are identified, briefly described and illustrated which have particular associations with A.J. Brown and his family during their twenty year residence in Burley-in-Wharfedale.
The terrain for the Trail is varied, including pavement walking around the village, a stretch of old railway line, field paths and tracks. Paths can be muddy at times, and there is a short steep stretch of stony path when descending from Burley Moor. There are a number of stiles. The route is not currently separately waymarked, although all paths are either public rights of way or permissive paths.
Refreshments can be had en route at Bleach Mill House, the Hermit Inn in Burley Woodhead, and at various pubs, cafes and other businesses in the centre of Burley.
