Tuesday, 1 May 2018 - Challenge walk Ian and Judy - tba

Hambleton Hills circular. Tuesday 1st May

This challenge (not super challenge as advertised) walk starts from the car park in Silton forest near Nether Silton. it is about 13km (4.5hrs) and I would rate it moderate due to a fairly gentle climb of 364 metres onto the moor. The climb starts in the forest and onto the moor joining the Cleveland way. We turn south to Black Hambleton taking in the views along the track. The descent is down White Gill to Nab farm before meandering back through farm land to the car park. The Gold Cup pub in Nether Silton might be open on our way back!
To get there Google maps suggests taking the A1M north then the A19. Thirsk is passed on the bypass and after passing the turn for Borrowby take the right hand turn to Nether Silton and Over Silton. The A19 is a busy road take care. Pass through Nether Silton and after about 200yds take the left turn up Moor lane, the car park is reached in about a third of a mile.
Google maps says the route is 44 miles and 49 minutes each way. Meet at Eversley to leave at 9am in order to start the walk at 10am. £17.60 per car

Ian will be going straight there, If anyone else is going straight there please let Ian know.

Saturday, 26 May 2018 - calderdale way stage 2 by public transport Tony and Margaret -

As we had to abandon the first stage short of the projected finish in Illingworth, we plan to start the second section at Stone Chair and End at Pecket Well instead if Heptonstall.

The distance is 13 Miles.

We plan to catch the 08.08 train from Micklefield to Halifax but we have to get tickets to Hebden Bridge return (£7.40 or £4.90 with Railcard) We will then catch a bus from Halifax Railway Station to Stone Chair to commence the walk. They run every 15 minutes. We should be in a position to start the walk at about 10.00am.

At the end of the walk we will catch a bus down into Hebden Bridge where we will catch a train home. They run direct through so there is no train changes either way.

We plan to meet at Micklefield Railway Station (free parking) so anyone needing a lift to Micklefield, please contact Margaret or Tony

This walk has not been recce’d.
