A winter scene in the Dales. Looking towards Ingleborough from Sulber Nick. Climbs of Ingleborough start from Horton or Ribblehead. We run these walks throughout the year.

Wharton Hall in the valley visited on walks from Kirkby Stephen. A favourite venue for many easier walks.

"Well we got away with it" to use one of Lewis' favourite phrases; both in
terms of weather and having a leader who hadn't a clue where he was going
(but was relying on his trusty GPS). On arriving at Braithwaite we seemed
to split naturally into two groups, one taking a slightly longer and more
difficult way to Grasmoor (the high point of the walks at 2,795 feet), where
we literally felt on top of the world with stunning views all around, made
more atmospheric by the threatening black clouds. Miraculously the rain
held off until we all got back to Braithwaite and refreshed ourselves
(sitting outside the pub) and it only started as we were taking our boots
off at the end of a tiring day, that for some involved 4785 feet of ups and
downs.

Thursday Walk - 5 April 2007

Bolton Abbey Circular

 

Marking Ten Years of Glory

Alan Jagger bubbled over with enthusiasm as he told one of our reporters of his excitement at the tenth anniversary of the Thursday walks.

'I'm amazed that they have been so successful,' he said. 'but I couldn't have done it without the encouragement and help of all the people who have willingly taken on the task of leading every month. I am truly grateful to all of them.'

Alan was relaxing at the Cavendish Pavilion near Bolton Abbey after leading his first Thursday walk in three years, such has been his success in recruiting leaders. As a special treat and in celebration of the tenth anniversary and his approaching three score and ten birthday he had been allowed to lead his favourite walk up Simon's Seat.

'I couldn't have had a better day,' he exclaimed. 'The weather was superb, the views magnificent and the company even better.' Over twenty people, including members of his family, accompanied him to the summit to drink his health. Safely back down in the valley everyone was treated to a pie and pea supper before wending their way homewards. A wonderful day.
