LIKE A CHALLENGE

Then why not try the ‘A-Plus’ walks?

These are a little more challenging (longer and/or harder) than the normal Sunday ‘A’ walks. The walks vary from very hilly to very wild to just plain long and all combinations in between!  You will be guaranteed an exciting day in areas you may not have walked before. The walks will normally be held monthly on Saturdays usually starting at  09.00 with details posted on the web site or available from the ‘A-Plus’ Walks Organiser. As the walks are more challenging and to ensure you have an enjoyable and rewarding walk, please read the notes below before booking on a walk. 

NOTES

  • Walks to take place monthly on Saturdays. 
  • All walks will be guided.
  • The areas walked may not be easily accessible by public transport so anyone wishing to walk may need to use their own transport or come to some transport sharing agreement.
  • The walks will be reasonably strenuous/long.  Please ensure you can cover the distance comfortably and carry appropriate clothing/equipment/food/drink.
  • Walk details will be posted on the web site or available from the ‘A-Plus’ Walks Organiser.
  • Maximum number walkers: 12 per event.  Places to be booked by contacting ‘A-Plus’ Walks Organiser.

PROPOSED A+ WALKS PROGRAMME FOR THE REMAINDER OF 2021 IN LINE WITH CURRENT GOVERNMET GUIDELINES

  • 10 July -
    A+ 60th BIRTHDAY WALK
    Leader: Rob Jackson
    Time: 09:00 am
    To celebrate my 60th birthday on Friday 2nd July, I am taking over the next A plus and proposing a walk followed by a meal afterwards.The walk detail are as follows:
    EASTERN MOORS BORDERING SHEFFIELD
    MEET: The National Trust Car Park at Longshaw. Free to members.
    What3Words: glove.armed.tins.
    Grid Reference: SE 267801
    Post Code:S11 7TY
    MEET: ready to walk at 9am.
    Walk is 17 miles with 2056 feet of ascent.  All on good paths and tracks (no bracken bashing, or bog trotting!!)

    Track over Houndkirk  Moor and around Ringinglow to Rud Hill , White Stones and the Redmires Reservoirs. Paths to Crawshaw Lodge and Moscar Cross farm. All the way along Stanage Edge to Upper Burbage Bridge and below Burbage Edge back to Longshaw.
    After that the intention is to go for a meal at about 5.30pm, hopefully in The Fox House Inn which is next to the car park.
    The Fox House Inn has a reasonable looking menu.
    Please let me know as soon as possible  if you would like to come along and stay for the meal afterwards so that I can book a table. You can of course just come for the walk if you would prefer.
    Cheers, Rob
