Caldbergh and the River Cover from Middleham 21 October 2021

It was a chilly sunny Autumn day when we arrived at Middleham for our 8 mile walk.   

People started arriving, invariably saying that they knew of others who had said that they were coming.  When we were ready to leave at 10am, we had a remarkable group of 25 – we can’t remember a higher attendance for years !  Carol & Patrick backmarked and we set off past the magnificent Castle and on to the Middleham Gallops.  We reached Tupgill where we paused for a coffee break at the ornamental pond.  We crossed the River Cover and continued up to Caldbergh where we reached the track heading eastwards towards Braithwaite Hall with outstanding views across the valley and to the North Yorkshire Moors.  We had lunch near Braithwaite Hall before continuing to Hullo Bridge.  The walk along the Cover was a delight with the Autumn colours beginning to show.  We returned along Straight Lane and back to Middleham by the cricket field.

Perfect weather, great scenery and an enormous amount of chatter ! 12 of us finished the day with refreshments at The Dante Arms in Middleham. 

Thanks to Richard & Gwyneth for supplying photo and thanks to everyone who turned up for a great walk.

Steve & Carol Charlton
