Starting at Penistone the walk begins on the Trans Pennine Trail and then climbs steeply up to Royd Moor viewing point. We then continue, passing both Royd Moor and Scout Dyke reservoirs before circling back to Penistone.

The walk is 10.6 miles long with about 1200' of climbing. On the recce the ground was quite wet underfoot so be prepared.

Leave Eversley at 08:45 and hope to start walking about 10 o'clock.

Distance to Penistone is 38 miles which is 15.20 per car (3.80 four people, 3.04 five people)

Arriving at the roundabout in Penistone take the left "Penistone Town Centre" sign and at the next roundabout go straight accross signed "Town Centre".

Passing Tesco's on your left, the free car park is on your right with an overflow car park straight ahead.

Tuesday, 10 December 2019 - Challenge Walk - David and Barbara - Pateley Bridge 7.45am -

We will walk along the River Nidd, to Glasshouses & back to Pateley Bridge along the Panorama Way, giving a second chance of a loo stop for anyone needing it, then along the Nidd in the other direction, to Wath, up to Spring Hill, Heathfield then on the big loop of the Nidderdale Way back to Pateley Bridge.

About 9.5 miles with a couple of steep climbs, which we think will be enough with the short December day.

Tea shops in Pateley Bridge afterwards. We think it will take about 5 hours.
