Forthcoming Events -

Wednesday, 24 July 2019 - Challenge Walk Mike - Black Hill 10 miles 9.00am - Black Hill and 4 reservoirs walk from Wessenden

This walk is fairly strenuous and involves about 1200ft of ascent of Black Hill from the Wessenden side on the Pennine Way on a reasonable stone path crossing 2 streams with slippery stones to assist. The descent back to the road is on a bearing and on the recce was very boggy. The onward walk to pass the reservoirs is relatively straightforward mostly on made paths with a long pull back from the last 2 reservoirs to the road.
Please check this Walk on the Walking Britain website walk number 2518 for more information, although the boggy part mentioned on the website is now on Black Hill and not the path to the first reservoir.
Walk length just over 10 miles.
Meet at Eversley 08:45 to leave at 09:00 Anybody going direct please let Mike, Peter or Tony know.
Parking at the roadside car park opposite the entrance to Wessenden Head reservoir (free).
Approx post code HD9 4EU.
Distance 41 miles each way making it £4.10 each for a car of 4
When doing the recce the mobile cafe was not there and there are no toilets nearby.
If refreshments are needed after the walk there are 2 pubs just over 2 miles away on the road to Holmfirth, the nearest cafes are in Holmfirth.

Wednesday, 11 September 2019 - Celebration Walk Pat & Jim - Rosedale Abbey 8.30am -

Here are the details of Mary’s 80th celebration walk on Wednesday 11th Sept. NOTE DATE CHANGE

This North Yorkshire Moors walk is from Rosedale Abbey village.

From the village centre free carpark we take the route which follows the river seven through fields and dales heading north west (a very pleasant walk) until we eventually head west across the dale to be confronted by the Rosedale west side bank, a long though not too arduous ascent with lovely views from the tops across the Rosedale valley.

We now head south east along the superb high level walk of two and a half miles or so before taking the field route down the bank to bring us back to Rosedale Village.

We have arranged with the Abbey Tearoom to accommodate our group mid-afternoon for refreshments on the day and the village has good toilet and parking facilities.

This walk is about seven mile, just right for this particular day.

We meet at Eversley carpark to leave at 08.30 to start walking at 10.00

 

the mileage is 108 miles the car charge is £21.60.   This equals £5.40 x 4 or £4.32 x 5.

Hope the weather is kind to us as this is a lovely walk to celebrate Mary’s birthday.

Regards, Jim and Pat.
