Sign on Cam High Road
The Dales Way Association is registered as a small charity with HM
Revenue and Customs.
Dales Way Association was established in 1991 by a small group of
individuals, reflecting user group and tourism interests along the
Dales Way. It has over 350 members, including a number who are owners of
guest house, inn, farmhouse and bed and breakfast accommodation along the route, together with a number
who provide services such as baggage transfer, accommodation booking etc.
remainder are individual walkers.
Membership is open to all who have walked,
or plan to walk, the Dales Way or simply care about its future. The annual AGM occurs in the Dales each
Committee meetings are held every two to three months throughout the year.
Minutes of meetings can be found in the special
members-only area of this website.
The Association adopted a Small Charities Constitution in 2012.
As a small charity, the committee members are also Trustees of the

Association funds have been built up from Subscriptions
and Donations. In its early days the Association received significant
support from the Ramblers' Association and the South Lakeland Tourist
Association. Funds are held for use to support the route, possibly as
a part contribution to enable a suitable project to be started. An
example is the building of a new footbridge over Crosedale Beck in
early 2012. The
Association also purchased a supply of special Way Marks for both the main
and the three Link routes at its eastern end.
The Association has the ongoing aim of improving the route where desirable. In particular it seeks to
minimise any road walking where feasible.
