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.

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.

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.

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.
