Impromptu Walk from Marske

Eleven of us met at Marske to walk to Helwith via Telfit  and back along the ridge - 6 miles.

The weather was lovely: sunny, crisp and no wind.  The walk  fitted in perfectly  between Storms Malik and Corrie.

Impromptu walk in Arkengarthdale

18 of us met in Reeth for a 7 mile walk which included ascending Fremington Edge via Castle Farm---there were some "grumbles" as it is a very steep climb up---  however, overall everyone enjoyed the walk and the weather was fine---no rain and some sun.  We met our Mountain biking section having their lunch half way round

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. 

Downholme to Richmond 2 December 2021

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

Posted by Wendy Bradley on 2021-11-27

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.
