Langdale Skyline Walk - 29th March
A stroll of about 14m taking in the highlights of the Great Langdale skyline. Meet at car park (NT), New Dungeon Ghyll at 0830. This is the day before the clocks change, so bring head torches just in case. Convivial post walk pint/food in the Stickle Barn has to be a possibility..
Colne-Rawsley - 5th/6th April
This walk is a Club classic, and was last on the programme in March 2003 when I was meet leader. A classic walk of 70 or so miles down the backbone of the Pennines, starting 10.30 a.m. on Saturday morning near Colne, over Boulsworth Hill, through “Tod” over the M62, down to Marsden for a late supper, before a night crossing over Black Hill, Bleaklow and the outer edges. Breakfast near
Stanage, then into cruise control south over Froggatt, Baslow etc. and delightfully through the Chatsworth estate for a pint in Rowsley early on Sunday afternoon. Or at
least that’s how I remember it from 10 years ago.
Dark Peak - 4 County Tops - 12th April
This trip of about 42 miles requires an early start from the Trespass car park in Hayfield and late finish so bring head torches and a light rucksack. Start at 06am from Hayfield’s Bowden Bridge Car Park (GR 049869 with plaque dedicated to the 1932 Kinder Trespass). The route links together the 4 county tops going via the Snake Inn, Alport Castles and Snake Top.
Lakes Backpack 12/13th April
This back pack will leave from Seathwaite Farm, Borrowdale at 1000am on the 12th April. My intention is to walk to one of the Tarns on the High Water marks to camp then return the next day. I might take my rock shoes along as I will try and find some bouldering on route or at the campsite.
