Hawnby Walk 27 November 2017

 Hawnby Walk  27.11.17

Seven stalwarts and leader met for an early start at Hawnby church with the expectation of a good stride of 12.5 miles and improving weather prospects.

Bob led us south  over  Hawnby bridge, where we turned left to cross  “clarty” fields to follow the River Rye. We ascended to   the deciduous Cliff  wood,  eventually dropping down  alongside the river. At one stage the leaves and steep muddy banks, necessitated crossing a wooden walkway, which in itself proved treacherous.

Great Gable 13th November 2016

It is 100 years since the Battle of the Somme and so this year’s Remembrance Service is a particularly poignant one. The summit of Great Gable is a war memorial dedicated to the members of the Fell and Rock Club killed in the First World War and subsequent conflicts and every year a memorial service takes place at 11.00am on Remembrance Day.

High Cup Nick – Sunday 6 November 2016

 

The weather was something of a shock for us as we drew back the curtains on the third day of the Club’s Dufton Youth Hostel Event – it was snowing steadily.

Reeth 30 October 2016

British Summer time ended this weekend giving us all an extra hour in bed. It was a glorious mid Autumn day as we met at Reeth Village Green for our walk up Fremington Edge. Tim & Berni, Mark T, Mike Palmer, Len & Joan, Yvonne and Brian Harker joined us.

In Memoriam Geoff Harker

This was a memorable day in many respects.  It is a tribute to Geoff’s memory that some thirty six members of the SOC assembled on Reeth Green to pay tribute, to remember a good friend of the club and to express their appreciation for Geoff’s generous bequest which his brother Brian presented to our section leader, Trevor Thurlow. It was a moving occasion.

Memories.

Ravenstonedale – Thursday 6 October 2016

Parking our cars outside the Kings Head Hotel was a reassuring statement of intent for Graham as we set off, from the village of Ravenstonedale, for our day out on the Howgill Fells, on a superb bright and crisp morning. My feet feeling very comfortable and happy in a pair of socks loaned to me by Yvonne, mine having decided to stay at home in the draw for the day.

Witton Moor and the Six Dales Trail from East Witton – 13th October 2016
 
We were a party of eight on what definitely felt like the first walk of autumn! The morning brought low cloud and mizzle turning to decidedly wetting rain as we pondered on where to stop for lunch.  I decided I had better take the photo for the walk at this point and you may well feel sorry for us all.
