Herdwick Fell 12 April 2018

“Every cloud has a silver lining”. I was spared leading this walk on the day which was cursed with poor conditions. I had developed a painful abscess which needed immediate dental attention. Glenys assumed the leadership role and led a small group consisting of Geoff Wall, Paul, Barry and Yvonne on this 8.5 mile ramble.

Brompton on Swale Walk 22 March 2018

Three of us walked down to Round How to follow the river to the Station to meet Richard, Pat and Brian. It was perfect hiking weather. Walking past the treatment works we climbed up to Hagg Farm for a quick coffee then on to Old Colburn. We kept up a quick pace as we tripped on to St Giles Farm where we took the diversion along the farm drive to the main road in order to cross the A1.

The banking was still being worked on as we crossed the river and walked along the bank to the cataracts for lunch.

Easter Sunday 2018 Ellerton Scar walk

It wasn't just Brian and I on Grinton Moor for the start. In fact there were ten of us! Since I'd planned to begin at the church, we ended up wandering towards Cogden Gill in others' footsteps before joining the route at the Prehistoric burial on Cogden Heugh and walking east along the wall line.

The wind was chilly and there was the odd snow flurry but the weather was much better than expected. The ground was also better than the previous day's snow and rain implied.

Geoff Harker Memorial Walk 5 April 2018

As expected Geoff’s memorial walk was well attended; 37 club members in all following a familiar route from Surrender Bridge, climbing away from Gunnerside Gill, then descending to Level House with the return via Mill Gill and its imposing remains of the lead-mining industry.

Bolton Castle and Carperby from Aysgarth Falls 8th March 2018

 

There was a hint of snow in the air as 10 of us gathered at Aysgarth Falls car park, the week after the “Beast from the East” had brought droves of snow to the region. The roads were clear but some snow remained on the hills, looking glorious in the early March sunshine.

“A Richmond Ramble” – Sunday 4 February 2018

Following the steady rain and generally miserable weather of the previous day it was good to see the sun shining brightly as we gathered at Richmond Market Place for a repeat of my 2017 pre-Annual General Meeting walk. It went well last year so why change a winning formula?

The winter scene around Gayles was pretty stunning as well! At least we got out in the snow.
