Harkerside Moor from Reeth Thursday 21st July

11 members joined Carol and Steve at Reeth Green for this classic Swaledale walk. The weather was glorious, the temperature having moderated slightly from the 30 degrees which we had earlier in the week. We walked down to the suspension bridge and had a lovely riverside ramble followed by a slight climb up to the Harkerside Moor road. After a short section of road walking, we climbed up to Maiden Castle for a coffee stop.

ADDLEBROUGH – 7 JULY 2016

We arrived in Askrigg to find 4 walkers already gathered for the advertised 10.30am start.  In fact, through force of habit, they had been there for a 10 o’clock start and were beginning to wonder where their leader was.  The initial group plus Gwyneth, Dave and Carol Wilkinson and myself were joined (at the correct time) by Patrick.

“It was a dark and stormy night.....”

I always wanted to start a walk report with that line, but on the Saturday of the S.O.C. club camp it had been a stormy night on Friday. So only four walkers, Tracy, Jill, Trevor and myself  set off from Usher Gap on the `strenuous` walk up

I have never seen the trig point (at 236 meters) before so it is a "first" for me. Only Maura and I were on the expedition but the sun was shining and all was well with the world.

"It was the SOC walkers both lads and lasses

With a hey, and a ho, and a  hey nonny no

That over the green pastures passes

In the springtime, the only pretty ringtime

When birds do sing, hey ding a ding ding

Sweet walkers love the spring"

Cat Bells without oxygen ! Tuesday 7th June, 2016

Our walk for the 50,000 feet challenge was to climb Cat Bells in Borrowdale and Berni & Mark T joined us for the drive to Keswick.  We met up with Jill at the Lakeside Car Park.

The weather was very warm & sunny with high humidity and we set off for Portinscale for our coffee stop where three people enjoyed bacon butties !
