I’m a bit of a Pennine person – dull, foggy, covered in tussocks…. and I was thinking about a theme for the blog (people may have noticed certain themes or projects at times, such as TGO training and planning and Hadrian’s Wall, for instance).
So my new project or theme will be to revisit (for I have visited them all before) all of the 2000 foot tops in the Pennines, starting where I originally started many years ago – with the Yorkshire Dales.
There’s another Pennine project I have in mind, too, but I will say no more (not that I’ve said much so far…) till other things come to fruition. Hopefully, people will find whatever it is interesting, though.
In the meantime, there’s the Yorkshire Dales 2000 foot tops. The Yorkshire Dales, I’ve decided are the valleys that lie between the A65 in the South and the A66 in the North and I’m starting tommorrow.
I was thinking of publicising which hills I plan to do and when, so that if anybody wants to join, they can do. Probably a bit short notice for tommorrow, though.
Here’s the November hills.
Sunday 1 November Birks Fell starting at Buckden
Sunday 8 November Buckden Pike starting at Buckden – will include the subsidiary Tor Mere Top
Sunday 15 November The Calf and other Howgills lumps, starting at Cautley
Sunday 29 November Fountains Fell and Darnbrook Fell starting at Arncliffe
Tommorrow, I’ll be doing a very similar walk to one which appeared in October’s TGO – Wild Boar Fell, Swarth Fell (and Pike) and Baugh Fell’s two tops – starting at Rawthey Bridge just up the road from Cautley a little way.
