Postponed for now of course; we'll reschedule when feasible. Thanks to Mark for offering to lead this one again. The description has been copied across from last time so some details may change - including start time. Do check before signing up. We start from the pub and pass Turton Tower, continuing through Chapeltown village, and on to the banks of the Wayoh Reservoir. From there we take in part of the Witton Weavers Way, and carry on to Entwistle Reservoir. We stop half way round at Cadshaw Castle Rocks to have lunch. From there we complete the rest of the reservoir, and continue back to the pub via another part of the Witton Weavers Way. Mainly good paths throughout the walk. Dog friendly, but must be kept on leads near sheep towards the end of the walk. Please park in the pub car park as far away from the pub as possible. Plenty of spaces. The post code for the pub is BL7 9AN The location of the pub is approx a third mile south (on the same road) from where the location is shown on the map. I am struggling to alter it.
I'm leaving the description to remind me of what life used to be like - back when the timing of a bike race mattered to any of us. Those were the days. This one could be tricky. Thanks to Chris Mellor for pointing out The T de Y is round our way on that day. If anyone was brave enough they could arrange a walk to go watch...or in my experience of watching bike rides, watch some helmets whizz by. Chris says: "Tour de Yorkshire involves rolling road blocks not closures and usually goes past in a flash. Men and women’s races that day are from Barnsley via Holmfirth, Meltham, Colne Valley, Ripponden, Hebden Bridge, Oxenhope, Southowram, Brighouse and Rastrick to Huddersfield. So to the west to watch, to the east to avoid. " Any thoughts? May be easier to do one on Sunday depending on where T de Y is then. Don't worry if you see "Unpaid" by your name. We don't use that system - just £1 on the day please.
