Following on from our succesful West Highland Way in 2010 the ten West Highlanders decided to undertake another trip in 2011. We were inspired by a presentation by Chris and Tony Grogan to undertake the Dales High Way – a walk they had devised from Saltaire to Appleby.

Across to Colsterdale.Thursday 14 April.

 

Sixteen of us met on a fine and sunny morning at the picturesque village of East Witton. It was still cool when we climbed up the bank along the edge of coniferous woodland which covers the northern slopes of Witton Fell. It was nice to see that Sowden Beck Farm has been "done up" again and is being lived in. Last time we passed it was derelict.

SOC Family Walk, Saturday 19th March 2011

Posted by Swaledale Outdoor Club on 2011-04-18

Six adults and six children (welcoming 6 newcomers) met in Castleton on the North Yorkshire Moors for a family walk organised by Liz and family.  Heading out of the village past the play park (well - not straight past – after a 5 minute play) and rail station we soon took a wide bridlepath towards Danby. New born lambs, daffodils and moorland views made this a great spring walk. In fact the children were invited in to a garden to stroke the newest additions to the family. T commented that: “It was great being able to feel right down into their curly hair.”

Sunday 28 March 2011 Black Hambleton from Osmotherley

Posted by Swaledale Outdoor Club on 2011-04-10

Thirteen joined me at Sheepwash car park near Osmotherley on a clearish Sunday morning. Including Andy and John, previous members who have returned to SOC..  We set off up the Drovers Road toward Chequers and Square Corner.  We made our way up to Black Hambleton in time for a coffee and a short refuel before asending the summit trig point of Black Hambleton.
