Langsett - Saturday 27th April

posted Apr 6, 2019, 5:56 AM by Charles Skeavington

Malcolm is taking us on a mystery tour from Langsett Barn. A walk, but with focus on optional Navigation practice (hence the unknown destination). Mileage won't be large but can be extended if desired.

If you haven't done much navigation or are a bit rusty then come along. We'll mix up abilities to make teams. If you just want to walk then that is fine too.

Be ready to start walking from Langsett Barn (A628, Woodhead, just before Flouch) at 10am or meet at Worksop Rail Station to depart at 8.45am.

They do a very good breakfast at the cafe across the road (painted with polka dots.)

NO DOGS as walk goes onto Access Land where they are not allowed

May Meeting Wed 1st

posted Apr 6, 2019, 5:51 AM by Charles Skeavington

At the Station Hotel as usual but probably 8.30pm start.

I will be giving a short presentation on trip going hut to hut in the Dolomites from last summer.

Other weekends 2019

posted Dec 11, 2018, 5:00 AM by Charles Skeavington

a) Camping meet in the Lake District. 5th to 6th July – It has been a few years since we have run this meet but hopefully there will be plenty of interest. The initial proposal is to use the National Trust campsite at Wasdale.

b) Dean is organising a few days 19th to 21st September doing the Welsh 3000’ers. The plan is to hopefully use a bunkhouse/yha or climbing hut as a base and have support/ transport. As well as anyone wanting to do the 3 day walk (Note this is a very pleasurable way to do what is normally done as a gruelling 24hr challenge), members who just want to go up to the area for a few days and do their own thing are very welcome.

c) One or two of the day walks such as North Pennines or Nine Standards Rigg lend themselves to at least one overnight or even making a weekend of it.

Huts 2019 General

posted Dec 11, 2018, 4:57 AM by Charles Skeavington

a) The rates have not altered and remain at £24 for the weekend but the Committee voted to change policy from £10 deposit to requiring full payment when securing a place. This proposal was agreed by those present at the AGM.
b) I must stress that although it easy and convenient to pay monies direct to Mick as Treasurer, please also take a moment to inform me too when you book in, I need to keep an accurate and up to date list without having to bother Mick, who has enough on anyway. I can be reached on email, sms, messenger, Whats App or even as a last resort on the phone.

George Starkey Hut 1st to 3rd Nov 19

posted Dec 11, 2018, 4:55 AM by Charles Skeavington

George Starkey Patterdale November 1st to 3rd – An old favourite which needs little introduction. Lots of fantastic fells to tackle from here. Although there are 20 bed spaces I have only made initial booking for 12 people. In addition, it can be arranged if any members wish to go up and use the hut a night or so before or stay a night or too longer (weekday nights are cheaper!)

Hut Weekend Brecon Beacons 12th to 14th April

posted Dec 11, 2018, 4:52 AM by Charles Skeavington

Penstar Bunkhouse Brecon Beacons April 12th to 14th – Finally we are off to the Brecon Beacons. We can take a maximum of 20 people in three rooms of 2, 6 and 12 beds. The slight downside is this is a fraction more cost wise than the climbing huts at £13 pppn. Located a little way out of Brecon, it is a great location

AGM 2018

The attendance was disappointingly  low this year.

Unfortunately Vaughn has had to step down from Chairmanship for personal reasons. We would like to thank him for the hard work and enthusiasm that he has put in.  As an interim measure Mick and Adam will share the duties until a willing volunteer is found.

There is no change in the officers or committee, Adam remains as Secretary and Mick as Treasurer.

Club subs - Unchanged at £20 per person (£36 for joint memberships) - Subs are now due.

Hut fees have also been kept the same at £24 per person per weekend, but the major change is that payment in full will now be required rather than the previous £10 deposit. We have a Bunkhouse in Brecons for April ( This one is £26 for the weekend due to the fees being charged) and our old favourite George Starkey in Patterdale for the first weekend in November.

Note the January meeting is moved back to 9th (due to proximity to New Year) and the March meeting to 13th due to Winter meet.
