Anyone who knows me will be aware I travel to the lake district 3 or times per year and consequently feel confident I can offer to lead walks in the lakes including a number of the infamous peaks ( knees willing ).
I will be making one such trip in September ( first week ) this year, staying for 4 nights in Keswick. I would like to open this trip up to a limited number of members of B & HRs who are also members of the Ramblers.
Before asking who would like to come…Continue

Unfortunately, there are no trains running on Sunday between Brighton and Lewes.
This dictates a change of times for the Hastings walk this Sunday, which is defined as a public transport walk.
The train journey for Hastings departs Brighton at 09:14, but has now been routed with a change of trains at Haywards Heath, arriving at Hastings at 10:52.
This extended journey time means, the walk start time from Hastings Station will now be approximately 10:52,…Continue

Those who know me, know i do go to the Lakes several times a year.
This year I am going from Sunday 17th to Thursday 21 May ( travel on 17th and 21st ).
Happy to offer walks to anyone who wishes to come along. I will lead walks on mon, tues, wed and thurs before departing. Depending on who else comes along, I hope to be able to offer two walks on two days, so that I can offer two peaks to those inclined, if the weather is suitable.

For those who like to take on new walks in remote locations, i can recommend this walk.
The walk will commence from the White Hart in Netherfield at 1100.
I wont be at the level, and would ask IF anyone is going to the level with their car, to

Join me in Hastings this Sunday for a pre Xmas " belly buster" walk, in an area we rarely visit.
For clarity - there are NO reported engineering works so trian will arrive at 1030 in Hastings where I will join and lead the walk.
Lunch will be at a lovely " carpeted " tea room serving snack food and full meals and they will reserve two tables for us BUT we must be prepared to remove walking boots or use the outside tables ( it may be pretty cold ).

40-50s - Walking In the Lakes - June 2013
I plan to run a walking break in the lakes in June based in Keswick.
Assisted by my brother we are happy to lead walks for 5 days from Thursday 20th to Monday 24th June. We will offer a list of moderate/ easy to challenging walks over the five days. The degree of difficulty is not about distance walked ( all will be relatively short on miles ) but on height gained. ALL walks in the lakes are weather dependant, if torrential…Continue
