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.
|Date||Status||Organiser and contact||Where?||Type of walk|
|3-7 March 2006
||Complete, report here
See pictures here
|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.|
||A short weekend trip to the
north coast of Devon. This gives options of walking on Exmoor or
along the coast. Should be a lovely time of year.
|20-23 July 2006
||A summer visit to a quiet corner
of the Lake District. Lots of high walking direct from the
door. Long days and good views guaranteed (well, long days
anyway) This will be a Thursday-Monday trip to allow for extended
travel time getting there and back.
|21-25 September 2006
||Complete, see report
||The annual trip north of the
border. If you want rugged walking this is your chance.
Conditions can be great or extremely miserable - we have had both in
|20-22 October 2006
||Complete, but no report
||Brecon, S. Wales
||About the closest place to
Hampshire where you can do proper (high) hill-walking.

and hills before Christmas (oh and Christmas shopping in Ambleside too!)
|end February 2007
||Patterdale, Lake District

ALSO we are planning to run a navigation course along with this trip.
