Black Country Walking Group will be hosting a walking week in the Lake District from the 30th Oct to 3rd Nov. Lorraine is leading the week with different walk leaders from the group leading a variety of walks. Walkers are welcome to attend all or just some of the walks.
Weather permitting we hope to include walks up Catbells, Skiddaw, Blencathra, Grisedale Pike and Hopegill Head, Great Gable and Dale End. If the weather is unfavourable another supplementary walk will replace the higher level walk planned for that day. Please come prepared to do a strenuous 10 mile hill walk - you will need a packed lunch, and plenty of drinks and snacks.
MORNING MEETING POINT:
Wednesday to Sunday Lorraine will be outside Old Keswickian Chip Shop, 5-7 Market Square, Keswick CA12 5BD at 8:45am.

We've tried to book tables in a few different pubs but they won't take group bookings. However, Wetherspoons is great as it serves quickly and caters well for large numbers so that's the best option if people would like to eat together each night.

Base location will be Keswick. Please book your own accommodation.
