Bowlees 11 NOVEMBER 2018

Rendezvous  for the team of 6 was Bowlees car park on a typical November morning - grey with some rain forecast.  Busy it was not. Walking down to the Tees we spotted a large group of paddlers from Leeds University having an exciting time going over Low Force, with not a capsize or even a roll.

SUNDAY 4 NOVEMBER: HOW TALLON AND GILL BECK

Six walkers (Annabelle, Bob, Bruce, Peter, and Richard and me) met up at Barningham on a grey, hazy but not unpleasant morning before taking the track up onto Barningham Moor. The first part of the walk was straightforward, following the moor wall to How Tallon, a Bronze Age burial mound where we stopped for coffee and to admire the misty views of Teesdale.

21 Oct 2018 – Grinton Moor (Back to form)

I hope those of you who didn’t come on my walk enjoyed the lovely sunny, mild autumn day in Richmond and elsewhere.  Unfortunately myself and those select few who did attend didn’t.

Currack Rigg 1 November 2018

The weather in late autumn can be seasonally capricious; late summer warmth; a low sun that plays clear light on the features of the landscape; majestic, scampering clouds; cold north-westerlies and heavy blusters that hint at the arrival of winter; the colourful residues of leaves that cling to the increasingly skeletal fingers of beech, oak and sycamore; the burgeoning harvest of blackthorn sloes juxtaposed with the inviting crimson of hawthorn red.

SOC Walk Report – Caldbergh & River Cover from Middleham Thursday 11th October 2018

The weather did not look promising as we gathered at Middleham Market Place, having endured thick fog and rain over the moors from Richmond.  12 walkers joined us including Geoff Kensett, newly retired and keen to see what the retirees got up to in midweek.

A stroll through Wensleydale – Thursday 9 August 2018

There were 12 of us for this very pleasant walk along field paths and tracks: Ann, Caroline, Yvonne, Brian, Patrick, Graham Berry, Dave W, Peter, Ron & Pat and we welcomed two new members, Geraint and Kathleen Howells.  There was a brief rain shower as we were putting on our boots but after that the sun came out and stayed out.

Muker 2nd August 2018

13 enthusiastic participants presented at Muker, ranging in age from 19 to ....well perhaps some things are best left unsaid! There was some lingering low cloud at 10am and a light spray in the air, but the forecast was optimistic. Setting off, we zig-zagged steeply up Kisdon Hill and, as the terrain levelled out, sure enough the the cloud began to lift revealing the spectacle of upper Swaledale.

KELD TO RAVENSEAT AND TAN HILL 22 July 2018

Nine walkers plus Arthur the dog set off from Keld on a warm Sunday morning with a pleasant mixture of cloud and blue sky to cross the footbridge over the River Swale then head west towards Ravenseat. After making good progress in the first hour, we stopped for “elevenses” near the impressive chasm of Oven Mouth above Whitsundale Beck, before traversing the farmyard at Ravenseat (no sign of the famous Amanda although several of her numerous offspring were in evidence).
