HWC trips 2005

This contains details of all the longer trips we have planned for the club this year. These trips include a stay away from home, normally for a long weekend. Transport to these is typically arranged by sharing private cars rather than using a minibus, as this gives more flexibility to come and go.

You must be a member of the club to come on one of these trips. Please contact one of the committee if you want to join, and we will be glad to tell you more about the club.

Thu 17th - Mon 21st Feb Complete see trip report Hazel Fix Borrowdale YHA, Lake District This is our 'traditional' winter walking trip to the Lakes. While the paths are generally good, the time of year means that snow is likely and it can be extremely cold - correct equipment is needed for high winter walks! But if you want to get out your ice axe and crampons, this is your chance.
22-24 April
Complete, awaiting report
Diana Ashworth
Ingleton, Yorkshire Dales
Easier walking in limestone country, generally not as high as the Lakes but very scenic.  You can do the 3 Peaks if you feel like a challenge (Ingleborough, Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside)
20-22 May

Solva (Penycwm), SW Wales
Beautiful coastal path walking in South-West Wales.  Plus a chance to stay at one of the best hostels in the UK (5 stars)!
Denise Haverty
West Country
Depends where we go - either Dartmoor/Exmoor or Devon coast regions.
During the summer
Hazel Fix
Wooler, Northumberland
Different types of walking from one base; Kielder Forest, Hadrian's Wall and the North Sea coast are all in reach.
Geoff Judd
Snowdonia, North Wales
Plenty of mountains if you want a challenge.
13-17 October Complete, see report
David Haigh Scotland (Torridon) Once again a chance to bag some Munros - this time to a very remote (and beautiful) corner of the Western Highlands.  Alternatively, we may head to the southern Highlands (Oban), next to the sea - but still with Munros available!
24-28 November Complete, see report
Hazel Fix
Lake District (Patterdale and Windermere)
As the Feb. trip, the Lakes offer great high walking and this time of year is quiet. However it can be a bit wet if you are unlucky!

If you want to go on one of the above walks, contact the organiser for details.
