Richard’s walk Mar 21st Greta Bridge

Due to land slips Richard has had to cancel his walk.

As this is the club weekend in Beddgelert he does not propose a replacement at this time.

If people are still interested in a walk please contact Richard on 07807813019.

Depending on interest he will reconsider the option of doing an alternative.

Update on Dave Wade

I called to see Dave Wade after his operation, this evening and took him a little bunch of flowers and a card from the club. He’s doing really well, only has pain after doing his exercises. He is up and about and has been walking a mile twice a day



And now for something completely different! – Standedge Tunnel outing Sunday 6th September 2020

Standedge Tunnel outing Sunday 6th September 2020


Britain’s longest,highest & deepest canal tunnel.

A canal boat trip through the tunnel for approx. 2.5 hours and then a guided walk back across the moors of 5.5 miles.

There will be a coach to transport us and the opportunity for a meal in a restaurant after the walk.

The cost for the boat and guided walk is £30 which is payable immediately to reserve a place. The cost of the coach will depend on the numbers going and it will be necessary to leave Darlington around 7-30am to arrive in time for the boat departure.

Places are limited and bookings are on a first come first served basis.

To book a place please contact Elaine Anderson ASAP.       07732718882.


On one or two recent walks some  newer members have expressed interest in our club background. Questions regarding our beginning, how we got our name etc. have been raised. For those interested a little booklet prepared to celebrate our 75th Anniversary in 2011 will probably fill in the blanks. Unfortunately copies are no longer available but we are sure that many older members who have copies would be happy to lend them  to  those interested.

A copy also rests somewhere in the bowels of the Darlington Library.

The title is: “75 Years On, and still walking”

Winter Sunday Walks.

Dear member

It has been traditional for the CHA to offer Sunday walks on alternate weekends throughout the winter months. Recently there have been some discussions about whether it would be possible to run a Sunday walk every weekend through the coming winter. Therefore on the forthcoming programme we are going to try and fill all Sundays with walks. This will only be possible if we can generate some additional volunteers to be walk leaders.

Marg West co-ordinates the Sunday walks programme – so if anyone has an idea for a walk that they would like to lead and for it to appear on the next programme then please contact Marg to book your slot. Leading a walk really isn’t as daunting as you might imagine and you will be helped all the way by the more experienced leaders.

The C2C group bought  a lightweight storm shelter which folds up very small and weighs 1kg.

It is available to any member who may wish to borrow it, just ask any committee member.
