Hubberholme Part 1 - 10 September 2020

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.

Middleton-in-Teesdale 20 August 2020

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.

Easby, Brompton, Skeeby – 16 August 2020

Six of us (in line with current Covid-19 measures) met under the clock in Richmond market place on a damp Sunday morning for this walk which incorporated some lesser known paths between Brompton and Skeeby which I had explored extensively during the sunny lockdown months of April and May.

Bolton Castle & Carperby, Thursday 13 August 2020

Due to popular demand, two walks were due to leave the Aysgarth Falls National Park Visitor Centre car park.  Geraint had kindly agreed to lead the second walk, leaving at 10.30 am.  Our group gathered together and left at 10 am.  After a number of days of hot sunny weather, we experienced cooler and cloudier conditions but, thankfully, no rain or thunder and lightning.

Roseberry Topping and Cook’s Monument Sunday 9 August 2020

We were a small but select band for a day with great walking weather to conquer the enigmatic landmark that is Roseberry Topping, Yorkshire’s own mini Matterhorn.

Hob Hole 2 August

Having signed up for Daves's walk I ended up leading the 2nd group.  We walked over Great Hograh  Moor with fine views of Common Dale and Westerdale and the 1st group way in the distance to a little oasis at Great Hograh Beck where we took a break.

We headed on Armouth Wath where we saw the 1st group just leaving after their lunch so we took their place. 

We walked along Middle Head Top to Burton Howe, a late bronze age burial mound but, oops, we should not have been there!  I took a wrong turning and added an extra mile.
