Settle, Catrigg Force, Victoria Cave and Scaleber Force
A lovely circular and very varied walk from Settle featuring the beautiful scenery of the Yorkshire Dales. We will make our way up and out of Settle via the village of Lancliffe. We will then head to the fabulous Catrigg Force, take in Winskill Nature Reserve, Victoria Cave, Sugar Loaf Hill and finally Scaleber Force. A 10 mile moderate walk absolutely packed with interesting things to see!
High Route Round Hayeswater
A strenuous walk starting at Hartsop and taking in 8 Wainwirghts as we circle around Hayeswater with potentially beautiful views across the rest of the Lake District. Some steep ascents as we gain approx. 3,500ft over 10 miles and some easy scrambling involved.
Snowdon Via The Pyg Track
We'll meet at the car park in Llanberis and catch the Sherpa S2 to Pen y Pass. The Pyg track is both the shortest walking route up Snowdon, and the one that involves the least amount of ascent. Despite this, the Pyg Track is not the easiest path up as it can be steep and rocky in places but the paths are generally very good all the way and reasonably straightforward to follow. The Pyg Track is 5.5km in length and involves around 800m of ascent.
Our Descent will be to join the tourist and race the train back down the Llanberis Path.
Thirlmere to the summit of Helvellyn via Dollywaggon Pike and Nethermost Pike.
Lonscale Fell & Latrigg
This walk starts in Keswick & uses part of the Cumbria Way to climb to Lonscale Fell, which is the high point at 715m and sits on the the flanks of Skiddaw. From there we will return to Keswick via Burnt Horse Ridge and Latrigg, which is a well known viewpoint. The walk is part of the Cheshire Walkers weekend away in Keswick and so is only open to Cheshire Walkers members, sorry! There are a limited number of spaces open to Cheshire Walkers not booked on the weekend away.

Three Fell circuit from Patterdale
A very strenuous walk which starts in Patterdale and climbs up on to Place Fell (657m) before dropping back down to lake level. The second summit is Hallin Fell (388m) which although not very high has lovely views of the surrounding fells. The final hill is Beda Fell (509m) which involves another climb from lake level and takes us back to Patterdale.
Explore some of the history of Britain's greatest industrial city. The walk is approximately five miles in length through an urban environment and there will be plenty of opportunities for refeshment along the way.

Circular from Tideswell Dale via Chee Dale and Monk's Dale
Summer version of the walk that I led in January, this time though, rather than following the Monsal trail we will follow the path that winds along the river through the scenic Chee Dale and then come back via the narrow and somewhat other-worldly Monk's Dale (neither of these are practical in the winter).
Rocks and Padley Gorge
Rocks and water
North Wales - Dee Valley Way
This is a linear walk taking in the full length of the Dee Valley Way. Starting in Llangollen, we will get the bus to Corwen to begin the walk. The route follows the north side of the Dee Valley, sometimes climbing up to show off the local scenery. The route was altered recently to remove a long section of road and improve the views.
