This year’s Richmond Walking & Book Festival multi-day walk was the Swaledale Challenge featuring 66 miles of excellent walking over a 6-day period. The walk took in an extended Swaledale Marathon over 4 days, plus 2 additional walks to bring it back to Richmond.
Some members of the club who are resident in Richmond may have noticed that St Mary’s bells are ringing out again. The new peal of bells were rung for the first time on Wednesday 19 July. We are obviously thrilled.
SOC have been going to Seathwaite Hut in Borrowdale since 1974. However, the last two years has seen poor attendance and it was decided that 2017 would be the last year we booked the Hut which is a shame as it is in a great location and has a wonderful atmosphere.
