Walks 2015

Our walks have become shorter (up to two miles) as various aches and pains are taking their toll. However, we have had a couple of outstanding walks this year.

There was a glorious evening in May, when unusually we went for a walk after supper. Cressbrookdale is about two miles from where we live, and is renowned for its early purple orchids.

In October, we joined other villagers on the annual Hucklow Hobble, this time staying in Malham, a traditional village in the Yorkshire Dales. We did our own thing and visited Gordale Scar and Malham Cove, which are spectacular.
