Yorkshire Three Peaks 27th-29th June 2014.
Clapham Bunk-Clapham: not far from the start of the walk/challenge
www.claphambunk.com– is also a bar and cafe.
The Clapham Bunkhouse is situated in Clapham, on the western edge of the Yorkshire Dales National park. Although the challenge is 24.5 miles in length there are other routes to tackle nearby or you may decide to just climb one of the three. Alternativley, if you feel that you are not sure that this distance is for you but would like to give it a go we will organise a longish walk nearer the time to get some practice in.
The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge includes:
The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge takes in the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, usually in this order, and in around 12 hours. These peaks form part of the Pennine range, and encircle the head of the valley of the River Ribble, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
The three peaks of the Yorkshire Three Peaks are arranged in a triangle, with the River Ribble and two minor B roads between them. The total walking distance is 39.2km (24.5 miles). The route can be found on OL 2. An early start is in order so it may be a good idea to get there in decent time on the friday. Depending upon how we feel sunday’s walk may turn into a stroll to the pub next door but we can decide that on the day.
We have booked 16 spaces initially with a view to booking more if we need them.
Cost is £14 per person per night, £28 in total. There is a kitchen available to cook but the landlady who I made the booking with has offered to cook us a meal on the saturday night when we get back for about £5 a head. After a long days walk this may be a good idea but this can be decided nearer the time.
To secure your place on the trip please Barry and pay a £10 deposit to the club, letting Mark Foster know. Full payment will be required before the weekend, I will let those attending know in due course.
