First March walk -Kirkheaton


The final update!

5 miles walk  with super views so of course there is some ascent. Nothing too frightening.

It's very muddy in places and slippery on a couple of slopes.

There was only one field with sheep (and one with horses) on the latest recce but lots of signs saying dogs should be under close control so keep your eyes open for livestock.

Please use the bottom part of the pub carpark.

    Great-thanks for the many reccies in advance Christine. And well-managed expectations on the mud-front. Nowhere near as bad as I'd feared.

    A lovely walk on a pleasant day, mud not as bad as I expected except for the bit at the start by the barn.
    Thanks for the lift Linda and the bun Annie

    Thanks for backmarking Jane. I didn't just forget - my memory was intermittently unavailable due to a recent denial of service attack.

    "Meetup is currently under DDoS attack. Our services may be up/down intermittently as we seek to restore full functionality"

    Gosh! bad hackers. I've given up on the Thursday email for now. I'll try tomorrow. Reccied Plan A again. 2 areas of Doom Mud but otherwise lovely. I forgot to ask in the pub about dogs but they do have a beer garden if they're not allowed in.

    February 27, 2014

    • Christine

      Think I just "lost" the email. Or you might be going to get it twice. Sigh.

    Would rather have muddy fields with views than boring lanes! :)

    February 26, 2014

    • sarah g.

      we would never complain! ;)

      I think you mean Colin, Sheila! The nasty bit on Plan A is a quietish lane but the cars which do use it come roaring around a corner. I am just off to recheck Plan A anyway. Mud and lane report later.

    Hi

    I am going to try (once again) to post after having to consult Christine twice! And I thought I was technically competent!

    It's possible you have Joanna Bond down twice-once as my guest and once as herself. If so that means there is a spare place.

    Well I'm not going because I've had no reply about the dog! Will join a group where I Know I can bring him.

    February 23, 2014

    • Sue F.

      I did wonder Christine...not like our great leader to miss something ha ha

      February 25, 2014

    • Christine

      Work went a bit mad for a while there. You could have got up to all sorts and I wouldn't have noticed. But I'm back now! Got a couple of days off so I might even catch up with the finances.

      February 25, 2014

  • Angela

    Is it okay to bring dog? This one is very well behaved.

    February 16, 2014

    • Christine

      Hi Angela, I'm going to update the details above to include info on dogs. I usually notice comments but if not you can always email the walk leader directly.

    This is a distance I would have been more comfortable with but I am working again. I do one weekend in 4 and unfortunately it has fallen wrong again. :-(

    February 4, 2014

  • Christine

    I've closed it for a couple more days to give me a chance to recce it before opening.

    February 1, 2014

  • Ann B.

    there's a nice 5 'miler' round Holmfirth/Upperthong or do you specifically want to keep it around Honley?

    January 8, 2014

    • Christine

      It's a walk from a book so I'll try it out and get back to you if I can't follow it.
