Twelve walkers set off from Muker on a grey and blustery morning hoping that the promised rain would keep off for at least a couple of hours. It didn’t: by the time we reached the summit of Kisdon a fine drizzle had started to fall and stayed with us for the rest of the day.

Whiskey and Walnut Cake Boosts the Moorland Wanderers!

Posted by on 2017-09-01

How best to describe this weekends intrepid walkers?  Leading the pack and showing us how it should be done were a couple of hardened veterans, a replacement but well travelled leader and his Alpine walking buddy, plus some regular companions and thrown into the mix a couple of newbies who obviously didn't take the whole experience too serious - it's a story in the making!

Leyburn Shawl and Wensley – Thursday 3rd August

The day was typical of this summer i.e. drizzle, squally showers but sunny intervals. Five of us gathered to do a route along Leyburn Shawl, down past Bolton Hall, along the river to Wensley and hence back into Leyburn.

Masham Circular 8 June 2017

It could have been the miserable forecast – or perhaps people having a lie in to be fresh for results night on the General Election – but we had a modest turn out of 4 on this one.

An unnecessarily early arrival In Masham from the Northallerton contingent meant we were able to partake of the early morning fayre at the Bordar Cafe – and the Bacon Sandwich in particular was given a thumbs up by Paul.

Reeth 15 June 2017

Ten members joined me and helped to navigate a route suggested by Ann. Good walking weather, good company and a lovely route from Reeth along the Swale to Isles Bridge with a return behind Low Row, up to Surrender Bridge and then the final part of the Marathon route. Participants who had been sweepers just five days earlier had not expected to be taking the same path so soon again. Verges and hedgerows all very colourful, thank you to everybody.

Best wishes,

Marsett & Semer Water from Bainbridge 1st June 2017

14 members joined Steve & Carol at Bainbridge on a glorious late Spring day. We made our way to the Cam High Road, a Roman road constructed in the 1st Century which links Bainbridge with Ingleton. We climbed steadily for 2 miles before leaving the road and reaching the top of the moor. Here, the views across to Semer Water and Marsett were outstanding,

Yorkshire Three Peaks Walk – Thursday 19 May 2017

The call went out for ‘The Magnificent Seven’ and they duly turned up at Horton-in-Ribblesdale to take on this 25-mile challenge walk.  

Having signed Jill, David and Jon, our Three Peaks Newbies, in at the Pen-y- Ghent Café, we were ready to set off on what was to be a long, hard day of memorable walking under blue skies without a hint of rain - perfect walking conditions.
