Leader : Michael Brownbridge          Distance 8 miles

Michael reports :-


It was a bright Saturday morning when 12 walkers set off from Reeth for the first official club walk in over a year. Spirits were high as we climbed up on to the open moor above Riddings Farm.

After following the path above Healaugh with fine views of Swaledale we found a sheltered spot to stop for morning coffee.

We then continued skirting around Calver Hill until we were greeted with lovely views of Arkangarthdale. Dropping down to Arkle Town we crossed the Arkle Beck and found a pleasant place for lunch break.

It was then a pleasant walk alongside the Arkle Beck to High Fremington and back into Reeth past the donkeys.

We then rounded off the day with some refreshments,with most of us opting for an ice cream on the village green.
