The A walkers met today at Swinsty Moore Plantation Car Park (the one with the toilets), near Timble, LS21 2NP, OS grid reference SE 186 537 at 10 am. The distance and ascent of the walk were 10.6 miles and 1,570 feet, according to ViewRanger on an iPhone 4S. There were 3 people on the walk: the leader and two newcomers. The turnout was not encouraging, but most of the group were away together for the weekend. Here is the route, from an earlier recording:
It was dry with a cold wind in the morning, and misty with heavy rain and sleet in the afternoon. It was nonetheless a good walk. We made rapid progress, despite difficult conditions under foot in places, finishing at 2:30 pm.
The snowdrops were in flower near Lindley Bridge. Spring is on its way!
