Circuit of Harland Hill - 18 October 2020

Six walkers (Jennifer and Mark Fitzgerald, Sharon Hanson-Cooper, Graham Moss, Mark Richardson and I) set out from West Burton on a grey Sunday morning.  We stopped briefly to admire Cauldron Force falls then walked through the fields to Cote bridge from where we followed a stretch of minor road to reach the bridlepath leading up to Fleensop Moor.

Hubberholme Part Two

Having been away, on another of my nautical adventures, when the programmed version of this walk took place in September, I was pleased to see that it was to be repeated on the first day of October. As with the previous walk we were rewarded with a perfect day; bright sunshine and clear blue skies, to undertake this classic inter-dale walk which would see us take in parts of Langstrothdale, Wharfedale and Littondale. 13 miles of hard, sheer fell walking bliss - or so we hoped.

Hubberholme Part 1

Perfect weather for two long hill climbs between Langstrothdale and Littondale.  A gentle breeze on the summits and cloud free views of Yorkshire’s three peaks.

Gentle green pastures up Littondale and a riverside walk past the new All Creatures Great and Small setting back to Hubberholme completed the day.  Very few people around.

Head of the Swale - a squally upland walk

Thursday 3 September saw two groups of 6 walk from Keld to the head of the Swale.  The car park at Park Lodge Farm/Rudkin’s camp site was open again – modest honesty charges raised some time ago on the recommendation of our bank manager member walking with us today!  It makes a good starting point with toilets kept beautifully clean.

Algorithms. The technological god which seeks to capture the present and predict the future.

I worry about algorithms. Their limitations have been exposed very recently in the examinations debacle as we all know. At this very moment someone out there is probably writing an algorithm to define the perfect walk and then map it. But the algorithm that addresses the individual human condition and perception does not exist and never will.
