|Our next walks from the Winter Programme 2014/15:
Saturday 20th December 2014
Our next walks will be on a full day, finishing at Appleby on Saturday 20th December 2014.
The ‘A’ walk will be led by by Andrew Holden and starts at Dufton, following the Pennine Way to High Cup Nick. Turning southwest to return to Appleby via Middle Tongue, Harbour Flatt Farm, Brackenthwaite and Well House Road. The last section of the walk is on good tracks or tarmac. The walk will be about 5 hours - 10 miles and 1500 feet.
The 'B' walk will be led by Jenny Hebbletgwaite and starts in Appleby walking towards the railway station, crossing the railway and motorway to Hungriggs Farm along woodland to Espland Hill, followed by a short road walk to Dufton Mill and Dufton Wood then Croft Ends towards Keld before crossing the railway to Hanginshaw and then road walking into Appleby. 7 miles, several stiles but no climbing.
The 'C' ’C’ walk will be led by Elsie Dowthwaite and is a circular starting from the Roman road under the A66 in Appleby through a narrow path lined with Elder, Sloe and Crab apple trees to Stank Wood and into Flakebridge Wood crossing over a stream lined with Alders, then following tracks to reach the Brampton/Dufton road. At this point the footpath is blocked off so the final stretch into Appleby is road walking. Mostly flat approximately 5 miles. If the weather is bad, an alternative route round Appleby is possible.
Non-walkers are always welcome to book on the coach.
