Recent Trips

Tunstall Reservoir Thursday 6 May 2021

Nine walkers joined Graham and me for a walk from Wolsingham taking in the scenic delights of Weardale - an area seldom visited by the section.


A fine, dry day.  Not unusual for April this year, but also, with almost constant sunshine, warmer than much of the month.  So, a very enjoyable stroll for just 5 of us: Ann Luxmoore, Jennifer and Mark Fitzgerald as well as Gwyneth and myself.

Sunshine and Snow 11 February 2021

We took advantage of the recent dismal weather to re-decorate our hall and stairs but, after two weeks of rubbing down and re-painting 9 doors, we were glad to head out yesterday for a local walk in the sunshine.

Along The Shawl to Wensley

I was joined by Sharon, Yvonne and Brian for a walk along The Shawl from Leyburn.  Early snow showers improved to a sunny afternoon with great views from The Shawl on our way to Wensley. 


PRE-LOCKDOWN BREAKS – Episode 1 – Derwent Bank

Looking through some holiday photos from earlier in the year on a recent wet day made me think how lucky we were back in March to go on a couple of HF Holiday walking breaks just before lockdown.

Brompton Loop

Patrick organised two groups on the day the walking programme re-started after Lockdown 2.

These curious sheep greeted Yvonne and I at the end of a fine autumn day’s recce of my Barningham Moor walk.  Got to grab the fine days when they come along!

A Weekend in Weardale

I realise that we have been conspicuous by our absence since the lockdown, so I thought it was time I contributed something to the Section this year, if only in the form of a walk (or walks) report.

Downholme Loop 1 November 2020

Patrick sent a few photos from his blustery but sunny walk around the Downholme Loop.

Clay Bank Circular 11 October 2020

The day began in a very packed car park, presumably people getting out before the announcement of new Covid restrictions the following day.
