(Page updated 21st October 2017)
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 email@example.com 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 24th October – Lynne B will lead a circular walk from the Dirty Duck at Woolsthorpe to Muston and return, about 5.5 -6 miles in total, with a shorter version if required. It is fairly flat, with at least one high stile,( which can be avoided by going through a few bushes!) There may be a muddy field to cross , but generally track, towpath and some road walking.
There is parking in the pub car park, but I think some of us should have a drink there if we are using that. Otherwise there is limited parking just over the bridge from the pub or in Woolsthorpe village.
Meet 0930 Orston Village Hall Car Park for usual car sharing.
Tuesday 7th November – Maria will be leading – details to follow
Tuesday 21st November – Robert will lead a short walk of approx. 4 miles for autumn. Starting from the Neville Arms car park in Kinoulton. Easy flat walking taking in a section of the Grantham Canal, some road walking, no stiles.
The Neville Arms does good food if any one wants lunch after the walk.
Tuesday 5th December – volunteer leader required. Can you help?
I’m looking for volunteers to lead walks – can you help? If so, please let me know your preferred date(s). If you’re interested but have questions please don’t hesitate to contact me by email or 01949 851379/07811 001197).
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.
