- York HF Rambling Club (formerly York CHA & HF Rambling Club) is a friendly independent club, which is dedicated to the purpose of providing enjoyable walking in the countryside.
- Founded in 1908 we believe the club to be the oldest walking group in the York area.
- Since its earliest formation the club has continued to allow its members to take part in healthy exercise, appreciate and learn about the countryside while enjoying the companionship of others.
The above photographs were taken at an evening at York Mansion House in the presence of the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress.

We also have a number of Social events coming up, please see the 'Calendar' page or the latest programme for further details.
Following the presentation that Douglas G Hope (Researcher University of Cumbria) gave to the club we are very pleased to announce that Douglas has kindly produced an article which now appears on the website.
Thomas Arthur Leonard, who founded the Co-operative Holidays Association (CHA) in 1893 and the Holiday Fellowship (HF) in 1913, was described on his death in 1948 as the Father of the open-air holiday movement. The article shows that this epitaph is no under-statement. (To read more please visit the ‘About the founder of CHA & HF’ page).
Also see our links page which can direct you to the new Douglas Hope website.
