On Sunday 12th July 2015, members of the Queensbury Community Programme Walking Group are going for a walk in the Yorkshire Dales. We are joining people who are preparing for their trek in Sri Lanka in November. Their trek is in support of Marie Curie, and this Dales walk is not a fund raising event. The walk will commence at the small hamlet of Helwith Bridge, then up a track to the slopes of Penyghent. Then the climb to the summit of Penyghent for fantastic all round views. Then we have the descent via Hull Pot, a vast hole in the ground. Followed by a walk down the track into Horton in Ribblesdale where there are toilets a café and pubs. After a break we follow the River Ribble using paths at its side, then back to our starting point, where we may visit the Helwith Bridge Inn for a well-earned soft drink or something stronger for the none drivers. We use car share for the journey to keep the cost down. Final details of the start time have yet to be arranged, but it will be somewhere in the region of 8 to 9.00 am. We will arrive back in Queensbury between 5.00 to 6.00 pm. Further details can be obtained from Stuart Walker 078 1520 1650. Why not join us and see what we do?
