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.
Mow Cop from Astbury Mere
Astbury Mere to Mow Cop via South Cheshire way, Little Moreton Hall and an ice cream farm.
Orienteering - navigation practice
For members only.
We will be using the permanent orienteering courses in Lyme Park for some navigation practice. The format will depend on numbers, but is likely to involve small groups getting familiar with an easy course in the morning, then after lunch singles or pairs heading out on their own to try something more difficult.
There are 7 options to try - from very easy to long difficult - so enough to challenge everyone.
Orienteering maps are £2 each.
- Country park
- Treasure hunt, geocaching
- National Park
High Cup Nick from Dufton
This spectacular glacial valley is one of the highlights in the North Pennines AONB.
The walk begins from the pretty village of Dufton in the Eden Valley, from there we head to Harbour Flatt then start to climb Middletongue Crag, we follow the Beck up to the boulder field then climb up the Nick.
Great views of the U-shaped glacial valley can be seen from the top. We then follow the Pennine Way down an old miners' track back to Dufton.
It is quite a steep and challenging climb but the footpaths are generally good for most of the walk.
Ascent 1,608ft (490 metres)
The South Cheshire Way from Wrenbury
A walk along Cheshire Lanes and Fields, with a long stretch of a beautiful section of the Llangollen Canal, returning along the South Cheshire Way. At the time of the reccie there was a very wet field, and a very muddy towpath in places..should we have a dry summer then that will be resolved. Suggest gaiters and walking boots please, as some uneven terrain... not suitable for trainers. In view of the pastures and the number of stiles this walk is not suitable for dogs, so regret no dogs on this walk please. Post walk drinks in the Cotton Pub opposite where we will park. I have graded the walk moderate due to the uneven terrain and the muddy sections.
Chinley Circular walk
A circular walk from Chinley
Shropshire: Long Mynd
A circular route up and over the Long Mynd and back again. We'll ascend through Ashes Hollow up to Pole Bank, descending toward Bridges. We will climb back over the Mynd via The Port Way and back to Carding Mill Valley.
