Friends of Dalby Forest

Volunteering in the Great Yorkshire Forest

David’s Seat


David Walker was one of the original committee members when the Friends of Dalby Forest were first formed. He played many roles arranging licences, insurance, finding funds for play equipment and organising events including the first forest festival. He was part of the 100 Tree project and was a member of the walking group who planned the Woodcock Way. He walked every week in the forest. When he died in August 2012, his family asked if he could be remembered in Dalby in the forest he loved. We are pleased to say that you can now find David’s Seat at the start of the Yellow walking trail, looking down onto a wonderful view to the visitor centre. Take a moment to sit and enjoy the forest when you next pass just as David did.

  1. Thank you so much for this lovely article, it means a lot. My dad would have been so pleased. Both my parents loved Dalby so much and now I have somewhere to visit, sit and remember them. Love and Best Wishes Laura. Daughter of David and Helena Walker
