Coverdale Round 16 April 2017

Coverdale Round 16 April 2017

Easter Sunday and thirteen “good eggs” assembled in Carlton for an eleven mile circular ramble. The weather forecast was not good. In fact I anticipated a “Richard Wright” event – teaming rain and a quick dash to the pub. But, as events turned out, it wasn’t too bad though nothing like as good as the weather that blessed our recce just ten days ago. Conditions underfoot were firm for the most part apart from short messy bits (“A bit like you, Graham”, someone said).

Askrigg & Askrigg Common Thursday 23rd March

There had been substantial rain the previous day preceded by several inches of snow.    However, the forecast was good for the walk as 13 of us gathered at Askrigg Church. We had researched the walk in December when the weather was stormy and we had encountered ferocious conditions on the moor. Thankfully, today was calm and pleasant.

March 9th – Pateley Bridge and Brimham Rocks
 
We started out as a party of 8, but by mischance but good luck bumped into David as we were approaching Brimham Rocks.  He had arrived late at the Car Park and had decided to go for a walk in the general direction of the Rocks, so we were well met.

Gayle – February Clouds and Chinwags

We set off in blue- sky sunshine, hopeful of spring- like weather -and arrived at Gayle with ten other hopefuls in grey, moody cloud.

CARLTON IN COVERDALE – 12 Feb 2017.

You may remember the cold and dreary few days we had around the time of this walk.

The previous 2 days had given us persistent rain and sleet, so it was almost a relief to wake up to just murk, drizzle and the threat of snow on Sunday morning.  Indeed snow on higher ground and even the road surface was evident on the “tank” road over to Leyburn and beyond.

Richmond Ramble 5 February 2017

"11 old ruins at an old ruin"

Richmond – Sunday 5 February 2017

A surprisingly modest number of eleven section members joined me for this pre-Annual General Meeting walk. Perhaps the unusually late start of 11am confused others or maybe some did not believe that it would actually be an “easy” walk as advertised. We will perhaps never know.

Around Arden Great Moor 29 January 2017

Sunday 29th January – Around Arden Great Moor

How could we be so lucky? Saturday’s weather had been poor and Monday forecast was even worse, but the day between proved to be a God sent. The clear night skies however had resulted in an early morning frost, making the drive up to Square Corner from Osmotherley a little difficult, not only for the writer, but for others who had left tracks skating across the road on the steeper inclines.

MARSKE, THURSDAY 26th JANUARY 2017

SOC WALK FROM MARSKE, THURSDAY 26th JANUARY 2017

As the Met. Office Forecast promised sub-zero temperatures, freezing fog and a biting wind I was expecting a modest turn-out for this walk but it takes lot to put off the hardy souls of the SOC walking section and seventeen of us set off from Marske Bridge en route to Marrick.
