Boltby to The White Horse and return – 28/07/2011

 

This was my walk, which was attended by Graham M, Mike I. and Sharman W.

Mark T was unfortunately involved in an accident on his way to Boltby, thankfully no one was hurt, but Mark’s car was a write-off. We waited until 10:25 in case there were any other delays due to roadwork diversions in the area.

Semerwater Round 11 August 2011

Posted by Swaledale Outdoor Club on 2011-09-13

Ann, Len and I travelled together from Richmond to Bainbridge after a wet night and with the prospect of a wet day.The previous day had been very wet in the Ingleborough area where Ann had been on a flower walk. Nobody else turned up at start so off we went, a small but select team!

Walking through sodden fields we reached Greensley Bank farm and cut across to the end of the Cam High Road. Although cloudy it was not raining and good progress was made up this Roman military road to Lancaster. It is difficult to believe that it was built up to 1900 years ago!

Hackfall Wood 8 September 2011

Eight of us took the riverside path from Masham to Hackfall Wood. We passed Nutwith Cote a substantial 18th century manor house previously owned by the monks of Fountains Abbey. An interesting house with adjoining stone beehives and a ruined dovecote on the top of a hill.

My last report about Penhill described perfect but imaginary conditions.

A Walk Below Penhill 23 June 2011

An alluring moment might include waking to rays of sunshine bursting through the bedroom curtains, the enticing sound of a blackbird's morning serenade and the prospect of a walk on the sunbaked uplands of Penhill.

The morning of Thursday 23 June was nothing like that.

Instead, the pain of rain against the pane is an invitation to dive beneath the duvee.
