A walk of aroud 7 miles from Winscar Reservoir, up onto Upper Snailsden Moss across to Ramsden Clough, with a bit of open access 'off piste' to the boundary fence near Britland Edge Hill and back down to the reservoir. It's a lovely walk with some great views of the north and south pennines, BUT it will be cold and it could be muddy if the cold snap doesn't last! I'll be going at a reasonably fast pace so that we don't get too cold, but I like to admire the view so we'll have a few coffee stops on the way. We will meet at Winscar Reservoir car park which is on the road between Hade Edge and Dunford Bridge. There is a sign (I think its a Yorkshire Water sign) for Winscar and there's plenty of parking there. Google Maps gives the address as 68, Sheffield S36 4TF but please check your satnav before setting off and ensure you're heading to Winscar. We'll head to the pub afterwards - there's one in Hade Edge. Please note that you shouldn't sign up for this walk if you're unsure about your level of fitness, or if you're not happy going off across open moorland. I am a competent map reader and compass user, but of course as Christine will always tell you we are not insured and you take part at your own risk! 10.30 prompt start please! Looking forward to seeing you. Alex
Thanks to Colin for offering this walk. Details so far - 7-8 miles with 3 ascents, one quite steep. Lunch just after 12 at the Church in Upper Cumberworth. Second drinks stop in the afternoon in Burns Wood. Colin doesn't hang about so not suitable for beginners, anyone struggling with and injury or anyone who needs a lot of rest stops!
A short walk with some stiles. There's some uphill but it will be taken at a steady pace. Some of us will be having Sunday dinner in the rose and Crown after - please make your own booking and make a comment below so we know roughly how many are eating. I have spoken to the pub and they are happy to cater for those who want to eat and those who don't. They have asked for those who want to eat to ring them and say they are with the Brighouse Walking Group[masked]. Doing this will help the pub to cater and if needed get more staff in. Please will you ring the pub if you cancel the walk and have booked a meal. Parking is available just past the pub on the road or across the road from the school about 300 yards away on Marsh Hall Lane HD4 6XD. The walk will start from the pub. The walk is ok for dogs if they can get over stiles, so not very big heavy dogs. Dogs are ok in the pub if well behaved and on a lead. It is mainly an easy walk with 2 hills that are a bit steep but not too long. Some lovely views. http://www.roseandcrownthurstonland.co.uk/
