Visit unique historic buildings, see beautiful countryside, get some exercise and have fun with the family!
Ride+Stride is a sponsored bike ride or walk in which people all over England walk or cycle between churches, exploring and enjoying the countryside from Cornwall to Northumberland.
The money they raise helps to save historic churches, chapels and meeting houses for future generations by helping to fund urgent repairs and the installation of modern facilities. Each year the event raises over £1 million pounds to help fund urgent repairs to historic churches and chapels.
In 2019 Ride+Stride for Churches takes place on Saturday 14th September.
A free and exciting art event for the whole family. Follow the trail through beautiful countryside on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, discovering dramatic art installed in historic churches.
Chris Czainski has been painting icons for about ten years, as part of her general artistic practice using contemporary techniques.
