Soup Walk to Cherrie Mansion

? Miles Grade ?

Leader: Judy Cherrie

Start: TBA

 

 

Due to these extraordinary times the  Annual Soup Walk to Cherrie Mansion will still take place but under a different format.   The idea is still the same, which is to have a short walk, enjoy some chat and refreshments before Christmas and to raise some voluntary contributions to Eden Valley Hospice.
 
Further details nearer the time -Hopefully!

Grisedale Pike from Braithwaite

7 Miles Grade 2

Leader: Pete Rutland

Start: Old Rd just outside Braithwaite 09.30am

This walk will obviously be dependent on the Covid Rules at the time. I would plan to meet at 09.30AM just outside of Braithwaite on the Old Rd where there is plenty of free parking. We have used this spot many times.  Alternatively if you want to go to the car park just at the foot of Whinlatter Pass which is on the left below Kinn we will be walking via there, but parking is limited.
We take the steps from the Whinlatter car park up the bank giving us access to Kinn then a good walk all the way to Grisedale Pike. A hill with a good mountain feel with great views. If time and the weather is with us we can go around to Hopegill Head not adding a lot on. Either way we will come down Coledale Hause to Force Crag Mines then the two miles along the old mine road back to Braithwaite.
After walk refreshments will depend on how things stand with covid and how individuals feel about it.
Good paths all the way and probably enough for a winter walk after a months lay off. Lets hope we can get out. If the weathers bad there will be a low level alternative.
 
Be there or be Square….Pete.

Talkin Fell to Tindale Tarn

11 Miles Grade 2/3

Leader: Pete Rutland

Start: Jockey Shield  - 9.30am

 

We start the walk from the road side parking at Jockey Shield. Arriving there to get away at 09.30.am, this is to try and get the parking space and its a longish walk. We take a straightforward route up Talkin Fell for the great views from such a small hill. Its then over to Simmerson Hill taking the path along the ridge and down to Gairs. We then head North along the old mine road around Brown Fell for a circular route around the nature reserve and to Tindale Tarn. We retrace our steps back to Gairs then the path just above the River Gelt and onto Jockey Shield.
This is a lovely walk, but to be honest probably Spring time would be the best as it has the possibility to be a wildlife bonanza. But who knows where we will be in 4 months time so just enjoy the cracking countryside. All on good paths but at times boggy underfoot. It seems a long way but its relatively flat so time should be fine, pack a head torch just in case.(that’s an attempt at humour). Early bird gets the best parking spot. Bring a big flask as I don’t think after walk tea will be an option.
 
Be there or be Square. Pete
