19th January 2022
A new walk for us today led by Eric approx 6 miles with minimal ascent. Starting from the car park in Northop and going across the golf course past Cobblers Wood and onto New Brighton and Soughton/Sychdyn and seeing a short stretch of Watts Dyke to return to the start. 14 walkers today, on a sunny/cloudy day, not that much mud with only a tiny bit of a shower. Thanks to Eric for this great walk, and Eric and Jackie for the photos.

Skipton Walking Holiday

We have just arrived back from a wonderful 4 days walking around the Dales. Staying in the Rendezvous Hotel, and with the heatwave we had to adjust our planned walks. The day we arrived a few of us walked along the canal into Skipton town, walked around the market, visited the castle and had a drink in one of the many cafes.
Day 1 Grassington to Barden Bridge approx 7 miles instead of to Bolton Abbey which would have been about 9.5 miles.
Day 2 – I improvised and we walked a new flatter walk from Rylstone around the countryside of about 6 miles instead of visiting the Cross and Obelisk which was a lot higher and would have been really difficult with the weather.
Day 3 – this one was from the hotel up to the Dales High Way and into Addingham again just under 6 miles.
An amazing few days and one of the highlights was a dinner cruise on the “Graceful Swan” an electric barge from the hotel down the canal and back. It was so relaxing, peaceful and the meal was just lovely. We were well looked after on the cruise and in the hotel.
Many thanks to all who supported us and came on some great walks. Looking forward to the next one.
