Christmas Lunch Walks 12 December 2021

Posted by Pat Kassell on 2022-01-03

On Sunday 12 December about 30 walkers enjoyed a splendid Christmas lunch at The Station in Richmond following two walks of about six miles. Caroline led 16 from Market Place along the river Swale to Hudswell Steps.  Barely halfway up we continued west, eventually reaching the National Trust permissive path through Hag Wood.  A steep climb was rewarded with a coffee stop and a view toward Richmond and the castle.  Our return skirted woodland and crossed fields, eventually making our way back through Billy Bank Wood.

15 of us caught  the bus to Downholme Bridge and walked back to Richmond along the north side of the river. It was a  beautiful sunny cold crisp day.  We met Patrick and Brian doing a much longer route --- theirs all on foot.

Coverdale 18 November 2021

A chilly start from Carlton in Coverdale led to people putting on extra layers.  Fifteen of us set off down the steep, wooded hill to Caygill Bridge and uphill to the typical dales village of West Scrafton.  We then followed the road to just before Nathwaite Bridge and through pasture to Swineside.  A coffee stop gave us great views over Coverdale in autumn hues.  From here we went down to Arkleside Bridge and followed the road into the pretty village of Horsehouse.  The village owes its name to one of the packhorse routes when wool was traded.

Autumn Sunshine on the North York Moors

Five of us joined Dave S to form a Covid friendly group of 6 for his walk from the top of Boltby Bank on the edge of the North York Moors.  The walk took us on an anti-clockwise circuit of around 9.5 miles taking in Arden Hall and Thorodale where Dave had chosen a sheltered spot for our picnic with a lovely view of the Autumn colours.

A Cleveland Way Circuit from Sutton Bank

A good turnout for a walk on the Moors saw 10 of us and John’s dog Demi meeting for a walk of just over 12 miles.  Our walk took in good stretches of the Cleveland Way, and completed the circuit on paths that were unknown to many in the group – so it proved to be a good mix of the familiar and unfamiliar on what proved to be an overcast and somewhat “blustery day” that still gave some good long distance views.

Jill was joined by Geoff for a lovely 8 mile walk from Nether Silton over Thimbleby Moor with stunning autumn colours.

Out and About in Wensleydale

Twelve of us set off from West Witton on Wednesday, walking up Langthwaite Lane to have coffee at an outcrop below Penhill with an expansive view of Wensleydale.  We then dropped down to have a look at the ruins of the twelfth-century Knights Templar Preceptory.  After crossing the A684 we took Stony Stoop Lane for a pretty walk along the River Ure, stopping for lunch at the picturesque falls opposite Redmire Force.  Warm sunshine broke out as we returned across a range of limestone hummocks to West Witton.
