Find the best Knaresborough walks. The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional resource for all walkers, hikers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to leader led walks to any really arduous walks within the Knaresborough area.

Find A Walk Near Me by using Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

HG Five

Forest Moor Rd, Knaresborough HG5 8JY, UK – 01423 863620

What a fantastic company to deal with!!!! excellent service from the second you deal with this company. They are so helpful, and the best delivery service I have ever used.It is great to have such a professional company on line.Well done guys and thanks!!!

Very friendly and knowledgeable service in store, keen discount, honest and transparent delivery schedule. Could't recommend highly enough. We had considered buying online, but went to view the great selection they had on display. We we soon convinced that ordering direct was the best way, and so it proved.

Homebase - Harrogate

Plumpton Park, Harrogate HG2 7LD, UK – 0345 640 7450

Usually more expensive than B & Q but large choice of top brands available

Pleasant enough visit apart from someone's. choice of music in the ears. If I want to hear music I'll put the radio on,I don't want it inflicted on me when shopping.

NORTH YORKSHIRE ELECTRIC BIKES LTD

19 Bond End, Knaresborough HG5 9AW, UK – 01423 603423

Bought a KTM Ventura 2 years ago, and never looked back really. Initially spent a couple of hours with Tony trying out different bikes, lots of information and attempting the crazy hills in Knaresborough convinced me to take the plunge. The bike has had only the most trivial issues in the 2 years, but Tony offers almost 24/7 after sales support/advice, the latest and most 'serious' being a complete brake pad replacement and hydraulic service with next to no notice on a bank holiday Sunday - Very highly recommend.

Been to this bike shop today. Tony was brilliant! He spent two hours with my hubby and I. He explained all the different models really well. He took us out for a test ride and was so passionate and knowledgable about e bikes. A real specialist. Really impressed. No hard sell just great service and advice. Thanks you Tony. 5 stars.

Snake bites

Most snake bites in the UK are not serious. But it's important to get all snake bites checked as soon as possible.

Call 999 or go to A&E immediately if:

  • you think you, or someone else, has been bitten by a snake

Find your nearest A&E

Information:

If you're not in the UK when you are bitten by a snake, contact the emergency medical services in the country you're in.

Get foreign travel advice on GOV.UK

What to do while you're waiting for help

Do

  • stay calm, most snake bites in the UK are not serious and can be treated

  • keep the part of your body that was bitten as still as you can

  • lie in the recovery position if you can

  • take paracetamol for any pain

  • try to remember the colour and pattern of the snake to tell the doctor

  • take off any jewellery and loosen clothes near the bite, in case it swells

Don’t

  • do not go near the snake, or try to catch or kill it

  • do not try to suck or cut the poison (venom) out of the bite

  • do not tie anything tightly round the part of the body where the bite is

  • do not take aspirin or ibuprofen, as they can make bleeding worse

What happens at the hospital

You will usually need to stay in hospital for at least 24 hours if you have been bitten by a snake.

The bite will be cleaned and bandaged. You may be given an injection to help protect you from tetanus.

If you were bitten by a poisonous (venomous) snake you will be treated with a medicine to fight the venom. This is given through a thin tube into a vein, called a drip.

Types of UK snake

Only 3 types of snake are found in the wild in the UK.

The adder is the only venomous snake, but you should get all snake bites checked as soon as possible.

Telling the doctors the colour and pattern of the snake that bit you could help them treat it.
