(Page updated 8th June 2018)
We are a small friendly group of enthusiastic walkers who meet up about twice a month. Most walks are on Tuesday mornings, covering about 6 – 8 miles. We also arrange occasional longer walks for those who like a challenge.
We meet at 0930 in Orston Village Hall car park for all walks unless otherwise indicated. We then arrange car sharing on an adhoc basis where we need to drive to the start of a walk.
New walkers are very welcome whether you come along for one walk or join us on a regular basis. Please contact Pauline on 01949 851379 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be included on our email circulation list or would like any further information
Here are the proposed walk dates for the next walks – Please keep an eye on your email for information about possible cancellation if the weather is particularly bad. All morning walks, meeting Orston Village Hall car park at 0930, unless otherwise indicated. Please let me know if going direct to the walk start point.
If a walk has to be cancelled, Pauline will normally circulate an email by 8am on the day of the walk.
Tuesday 19th June
Pauline will lead an 8-mile walk from Stathern taking in Eastwell, Eaton and Branston. This is a walk with great views and lots of variety, but it is more strenous than many of our walks, with quite a few uphill sections and stiles. There are possible short cuts which may appeal to some – contact me if you would like more info on that. Given the distance, there will be a break for a snack/picnic lunch, so please come prepared. Info on parking to follow.
Friday 22nd June – the annual Orston/Aslockton pub walk.
This is a traditional event that has been running some 40 years. Starting from the seat in front of Orston Church at 7pm, we walk along the Smite to Aslockton, stop at the Cranmer Arms for a drink, then follow footpaths to Whatton and back to Orston. Finish at the Durham Ox in Orston with drinks and sandwiches.
This is a sociable walk of about 5 miles. It will be taken at a leaisurely pace and everyone is most welcome.
Pauline needs to give the pub an estimate of numbers, so please let me know if you can make it.
Further Adventures in the Yorkshire Dales – May 2018
A record 19 walkers enjoyed some wonderful weather in beautiful Arkengarthdale. A few photos for the album are included below:
Adventures in The Yorkshire Dales – May 2017
Another very successful trip to Arkengarthdale, the northern most Dale. As usual we stayed at the CB Inn. Excellent accommodation, good food and great beers. Eleven of us made the trip and the weather was unbelievable. In fact it was rather too hot on the walk from Richmond on the final day (28 degrees!). John Johnson met us on arrival at the CB Inn having completed approx. half The Coast To Coast walk the previous week. He left us on the last day with Gordon to complete the easterly part of the Walk heading to Robin Hood’s Bay. Well done to both.
