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.
- Walk About 2018
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.

Anglezarke, Winter Hill and Rivington
We start with a nice stroll along Anglezarke reservoir before climbing to Great Hill, across moorland, and then a steep climb up to Winter Hill where we walk right past the famous TV station. We then descend across Rivington Moor to Rivington Pike, through Rivington Terraced Gardens and back to the start along Upper Rivington Rerservoir. We have an option to stop for refreshments in a licensed tea room 25 minutes before the end of the walk. Note the start time of the walk is 09.30 as the car park closes at 17.00.
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).
After exploring Yordas Cave, we head up to the sumit of Gragareth - highest point in Lancs and then onwards and upwards to sumit of Whernside highest point in Yorks.
Please contact me if you are going as the walk may be changed if the weather is inclement.

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

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.
Langsett to Howden Edge
Cut Gate from Langsett to Derwent was originally used for travelling from the market towns of South Yorkshire to Derbyshire. Some sections of the walk will be across open morrland, not following a defined footpath, so please come prepared for moorland walking. Boots and gaiters are recommended.
There are toilets at the start point.

A circular walk from Dovestones, up onto the moor to pots and pans and out towards Diggle before coming back through Greenfield.
Gummers How and Winster Valley
