Walking Monday 16 February 2015

Do you want to join us on Monday 16th February for a walk from Buckden located in Wharfedale in the Yorkshire Dales. The plan is to meet at The Waggoner’s car park, Ford Hill, Queensbury  at 8.00 am. We will then travel to Steeton for breakfast. Then onto Buckden where toilets are available.

The walk will be over the hill from Buckden into the next Dale, Litton Dale via Firth Fell. We have the opportunity of stopping in the village of Litton, although the pub is closed, http://queensarmslitton.co.uk/ http://www.littondale.net/wordpress/Litton

A walk then to Halton Gill following the course of the River Skirfare. http://www.boydharris.co.uk/070705.htm

At Halton Gill we start the climb up to Horse Head then descent into Yockenthwaite, in Langstrothdale. Then into Hubberholme http://www.thegeorge-inn.co.uk/  this is also closed and then back to Buckden.

12 miles and 800 metres of ascent.
