Looking Back in Time 27 January 2019

I enjoyed Bruce’s walk on Sunday 27th. January. So much so that I said I would write a little report about it. So here goes.

I’ve decided that I need to walk longer distances so I opted for Bruce’s 10-12 miles around Masham to start off with. I wasn’t going to be put off by 50 mph wind  ( perhaps I exaggerate slightly ) and joined Bruce, Peter and Brian in Masham market place on a very windy, yet bright Sunday morning.

GUNNERSIDE 7 Feb 2019

A good turn-out of 18 at Gunnerside village hall on an unpromising day with a forecast of rain and high winds for the morning at least.

Swale Pancakes 31 January 2019

This is a picture of an apparently rare natural phenomenon which we encountered on last week’s walk led by Geraint. The picture itself was taken by a local photographer just a few hundred yards upstream from Green Bridge.

The conditions must just have been just right for the formation of these ice forms. It was cold. We left home at 9.00 a.m. in a temperature of -6C and it did not get a lot warmer thereafter. The Swale was also unseasonably low. In fact I do not recall such little water in the river at this time of year.

Bowlees 11 NOVEMBER 2018

Rendezvous  for the team of 6 was Bowlees car park on a typical November morning - grey with some rain forecast.  Busy it was not. Walking down to the Tees we spotted a large group of paddlers from Leeds University having an exciting time going over Low Force, with not a capsize or even a roll.

SUNDAY 4 NOVEMBER: HOW TALLON AND GILL BECK

Six walkers (Annabelle, Bob, Bruce, Peter, and Richard and me) met up at Barningham on a grey, hazy but not unpleasant morning before taking the track up onto Barningham Moor. The first part of the walk was straightforward, following the moor wall to How Tallon, a Bronze Age burial mound where we stopped for coffee and to admire the misty views of Teesdale.

21 Oct 2018 – Grinton Moor (Back to form)

I hope those of you who didn’t come on my walk enjoyed the lovely sunny, mild autumn day in Richmond and elsewhere.  Unfortunately myself and those select few who did attend didn’t.

Currack Rigg 1 November 2018

The weather in late autumn can be seasonally capricious; late summer warmth; a low sun that plays clear light on the features of the landscape; majestic, scampering clouds; cold north-westerlies and heavy blusters that hint at the arrival of winter; the colourful residues of leaves that cling to the increasingly skeletal fingers of beech, oak and sycamore; the burgeoning harvest of blackthorn sloes juxtaposed with the inviting crimson of hawthorn red.
