More Walk Leaders Required

It would be helpful if we could have some walks starting and finishing in Carlisle, not too strenuous, about 6/7 miles.

We have quite a few members who do not have a car

and can't get to the start of walks

‘A Stylish Walk’


We start the walk taking a path heading south following the River South Tyne towards Garrigill. After about a couple of miles we join the Pennine Way/A Pennine Journey/South Tyne Trail to Garrigill. After the village we cross the River South Tyne and continue along the South Tyne Trail before taking a path up to Ashgill Force where we will have lunch. We will then loop round and heading north west will return to Alston following footpaths through mainly fields back to the start. There are a few styles to get over but it is a lovely walk offering superb views across Alston Moor.

Rest Dodd - Martindale - Deer Rutt

8 Miles Grade 2

Leader: Pete Rutland

Start: Martindale Church -The second one

Gr 434 184 - 10.00am

At the risk of being boring its that time of year again when the Red Stags are on the rampage. The Red Deer Rutt is from late September to early November so it seems like a good time to have a gander. We will meet at about 10AM at the church in Martindale where there is plenty of free parking. (not the church at the foot of Hallin Fell, the one about a mile beyond).

The usual route up BEDA FELL and once we get onto the ridge there is always a chance of spotting the Deer. Normally I take in Angle Tarn Pikes but will give it a miss on this walk in favour of doing REST DODD. 696m, probably after lunch at Angle Tarn.This means we take in a good hill while ever watchful for the big red beasts. We will head back down from the summit to the mountain track from Heck Crag to the valley floor. Putting my foot in the obvious hole I guarantee seeing some deer at some point during the walk. If you dont like deer this is a splendid walk in its own right taking in a couple of Wainwrights. Good paths all the way, but the first few hundred yards down from Heck Crag is more of a mountain track but shouldn’t give anyone problems. Those who wish can get after walk tea and buns  in Pooley Bridge. Any issues with the meeting place or the walk I can be contacted on 07534 358550.


Be there or be Square.
