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.

Ullswater Way

A Walk - Leader: Jean Murray - 20 miles Grade 2. Start Sands 8.00am

B Walk - Leader: Ian Rowley - 12 Miles Grade 3. Start Sands 8.30am

C Walk - Leader: John McKay - 5/6 Miles Grade 4.Start Sands 1.00pm

 

The walks will be led as normal club walks with the B walk taken at a slower pace. The B walk is longer than  usual but there will be time for rest and recovery and  it’s easily doable.
 
The A walk will leave the Sands at 8.00 with the intention of setting off from Pooley bridge  by 9.00. The full 20 Miles Ullswater way will be followed and the aim is to be back at
Pooley Bridge by about 6.30pm.
 The start point in Pooley Bridge for the A walk will be  Waterfoot Car Park Gr NY 464 243
 
The B group will depart  from Sands at 8.30 aiming to set off from Pooley Bridge at 9.30
We should  get to Glenridding, a distance of 9 miles, by 3.00 pm then get the steamer to Howtown (price £8.00 ) at 3.25 This misses out the most strenuous six mile section of the walk
We’ll also have  time at Howtown to rest before meeting up with the A walkers for the final Five miles of relatively easy walking back to the cars. The Ullswater Steamer company do recommend that you buy tickets the day before  online.
 It would be helpful if folks could let Ian or Jean know which walk they will be joining. Also if anyone would be interested in having a pub meal afterwards, probably at the Queens Head Tirril, can they let Ian know.
 
Ian and Jean
 
The C Walk will leave the Sands at 1.00pm
make their way to Pooley Bridge and catch the ferry to Howtown
where they will meet up with the A & B Walks 
for the 5 mile walk back to Pooley Bridge
