A Walk

Fleetwith Pike - Haystacks

7  Miles Grade 2

Leader: Ann McIntosh

Start: Sands 9.00am

.Christine Milton's Last Wainright
Starting from Gatesgarth farm we head up the front of Fleetwith Pike.  A long haul up but the views are spectacular (on a good day). We then head down towards Dubs Quarry and over Warnscale Beck.  Having done most of the climbing it’s an easy path to the top of Haystacks.  We’ll take the easiest path off the Western side of Haystacks avoiding the clamber over rocks,
before heading back down Scarth Gap.
I will be leaving from Penrith please get in touch if you would like
a lift from there.

Information Re: Car Walks


!. If you go direct please inform the walk leader of your intention.
2. More importantly, if you tell the walk leader you are going direct and change your mind and not go on the walk, let the walk leader know as they will be looking for you.
3. Be aware, if you go direct and plans have to be changed at very short notice the walk leader may not be able to contact you. If you are sitting at Haweswater, or other such place, and something has happened meaning the walk has been changed or cancelled at very short notice it is likely you will have no phone signal and be uncontactable.
It is often more convenient to go direct but members should be aware it is possible, though very unlikely they could be sitting at a venue that has had to be changed and its a risk they take.

B Walk

Greenhead Circular

9  Miles Grade 3

Leader: Stephen Parker

Start: Sands 9.00am


We will park in Greenhead, there should be ample parking, if you are going straight to Greenhead we will be meeting outside the cafe at roughly 9.30. 
From the cafe we will walk the Hadrians Wall path to Gilsland,
from there we will continue along the Hadrians Wall path to Birdoswald Roman Fort. From Birdoswald Fort, we will head through the gorge and fields to pick up the quiet road back to Gilsland and the former Gilsland Spa Hotel where we will visit the sulphur spring behind the hotel. This may be a convenient lunch spot, after lunch we will head back towards Greenhead over fields and beside the railway line.
On the way back to Greenhead we will make a slight diversion to visit Thirwell Castle, although a ruin well worth a visit, from there it is back to Greenhead and hunt out suitable refreshments. 
A pleasant walk on good paths and depending on the weather great views over the Pennines and Scottish Borders, with a little bit of history.
