Membership of the Dales Way Association is open to anyone who has walked, or plans to walk, the Dales Way, or simply cares about its future. Membership is primarily a way of supporting the work of the Dales Way Association.

When you join the Dales Way Association you will receive the e-newsletter in Spring and Autumn each year. You will also be able to access the Members Aea: here you will find in the archives copies of the minutes of the Annual General Meeting and our quarterly Committee meetings from 2012. There are also copies of newsletters from NL 38, Autumn 2010.

Older copies of both minutes and newsletters dating back to the start of the Dales Way Association in 1991 have been scanned and digital copies are available. This project was part of the Dales Way 50th Anniversary celebrations.

Membership allows you to take part in the work of the Association: to attend the Annual General Meeting, to stand for election to the Dales Way Association committee and to engage in discussion about the work of the Association.

Your modest membership fee helps directly support the Association in our most important work: maintaining, supporting and promoting the Dales Way Long Distance Path. The DWA is run by a small committee of volunteers with no office, no phone line and no paid staff. Our primary means of contact with members is by email and via this website. We no longer regularly post out documents.

At the 2012 AGM a new Small Charities Constitution for the Association was approved. You can view it (pdf) here. We are now registered as a small charity with HM Revenue and Customs.



You can join the Dales Way Association with an Annual Membership Subscription, or as a Life Member with a one-off payment.
