2017_07_16 Pateley Bridge

Leader : Ian Nelson                      Distance : 5 / 9 / 13 miles.


Today was the yearly bus trip day. This years destination was Pateley Bridge, on a what turned out to be an ideal day for walking.

35 walkers set off from Darlington. There were to be 3 levels of walk. They were all part of the one route from Pateley Bridge to Brimham Rocks.

The C walkers who numbered 3 were doing the 5 mile walk to Brimham Rocks and being picked up by the coach.

The B walk was to return via the river Nidd to complete the 9 mile walk.

The  A walk was to be a loop of 4 miles added to the B walk.

However due to the meal in the Half Moon Inn being booked for 5pm we did not have enough time for the loop, so 32 walkers completed the B walk.

“Every cloud”, as they say, meant we had time for a drink in the local hostelry in Pateley Bridge, before our departure for what proved to be an excellent  carvery.

Well done to Marg West for organising the trip.
