March 9th – Pateley Bridge and Brimham Rocks
 
We started out as a party of 8, but by mischance but good luck bumped into David as we were approaching Brimham Rocks.  He had arrived late at the Car Park and had decided to go for a walk in the general direction of the Rocks, so we were well met.

Gayle – February Clouds and Chinwags

We set off in blue- sky sunshine, hopeful of spring- like weather -and arrived at Gayle with ten other hopefuls in grey, moody cloud.

CARLTON IN COVERDALE – 12 Feb 2017.

You may remember the cold and dreary few days we had around the time of this walk.

The previous 2 days had given us persistent rain and sleet, so it was almost a relief to wake up to just murk, drizzle and the threat of snow on Sunday morning.  Indeed snow on higher ground and even the road surface was evident on the “tank” road over to Leyburn and beyond.

"11 old ruins at an old ruin"

Richmond – Sunday 5 February 2017

A surprisingly modest number of eleven section members joined me for this pre-Annual General Meeting walk. Perhaps the unusually late start of 11am confused others or maybe some did not believe that it would actually be an “easy” walk as advertised. We will perhaps never know.

Sunday 29th January – Around Arden Great Moor

How could we be so lucky? Saturday’s weather had been poor and Monday forecast was even worse, but the day between proved to be a God sent. The clear night skies however had resulted in an early morning frost, making the drive up to Square Corner from Osmotherley a little difficult, not only for the writer, but for others who had left tracks skating across the road on the steeper inclines.

MARSKE, THURSDAY 26th JANUARY 2017

SOC WALK FROM MARSKE, THURSDAY 26th JANUARY 2017

As the Met. Office Forecast promised sub-zero temperatures, freezing fog and a biting wind I was expecting a modest turn-out for this walk but it takes lot to put off the hardy souls of the SOC walking section and seventeen of us set off from Marske Bridge en route to Marrick.

HARTSOP (HIGH STREET) – SUNDAY 22 JANUARY 2017

HARTSOP (HIGH STREET) – SUNDAY 22 JANUARY 201

An early start from Richmond saw five of us kitted out with appropriate winter gear and ready to set off on what promised to be a good day’s hard walking by 9:30am.

WEST BURTON & AYSGARTH - SUNDAY 15 JANUARY 2017

WEST BURTON & AYSGARTH - SUNDAY 15 JANUARY 2017

I was joined by nine section members for what is one of my favourite walks in the Yorkshire Dales. An 11 mile circuit full of interest and variety which started this time from West Witton rather than the usual start at West Burton. This provided a couple of advantages – less distance to drive from Richmond and more importantly, the opportunity of a long flat warm up before we hit the one sustained ascent of the day.

Traditional Boxing Day Walk. 26 December 2016

Traditional Boxing Day Walk.

Eight of us met at 1000 hrs in Richmond Market Place, intent upon walking off the excesses of Christmas Day. It was a sunny, windy day and we descended to river level via Castle Hill and the "new" steps. We passed over the Green Bridge and followed the riverside path, past the old Copper Mine and  to Round Howe and the footbridge. We didn't see the Kingfishers which frequent this part of the river.
