Various people who were on the Canary Islands trip gave me an account of it over a curry last night. Subject to more official updates, I can report that the walking was excellent, including at least two walks from our accommodation on the north side of the island. This was quieter than the south but with less good weather as the group discovered when they ventured further afield into the […]
13 of us showed up in Seathwaite, and with the prospect of a soggy weekend, we prepared for the worst. Friday confirmed our expectations, but by the time we got out (late) on Saturday, the rain had cleared, and some of us enjoyed good views between scurrying low cloud. Different groups set off for Green Crag, White Pike and Caw, but bitterly cold winds sent us scuttling back to warm […]
Bill reports that there were 9 club members on the weekend who arrived at various times. It was a tad wet and windy on the Friday and Bill and Brian’s early start meant they arrived in time for a longish walk, but the high wind and rain put paid to plan A, plan B was thwarted by a flooded river path and plan C was blocked by a farmers fence, […]
OK you can’t tell from the picture of the hut on the front page, but it was a triumph over the grim weather that all 11 attendees from the NKHC and STMC climbed Ingleborough or Whernside on Saturday. High winds kept us off the tops on Sunday but we had a better day of it around Austwick and Malham. We also visited some excellent pubs, with Saturday’s dinner at the […]
See the events page for day walks, weekends and social events in the next 3 months (and weekends after that of course). It looks like plenty of people showed up for a last 2018 walk at Hindhead Common. Thanks to Heong via Chris for the photo.
We are reinstituting club pub evenings, starting on 17 January at the Norbiton in Clifton Road, Kingston. You are most welcome to come along if you are interested in joining the club. Details to be finalised but the webmaster will aim to be there by 7.30.
Despite unpromising weather at the start, Linda tempted 14 people on to the November day walk. The weather soon dried up and we enjoyed exploring Chobham Common, little known to most of us even though closer to home than many that we visit. A mix of Surrey heathland and wooded areas, it made a welcome change, even though the hills (OK, the hill…) didn’t tax us too much. We visited […]
Chris sent in this photo from the green in Tilford on the October day walk – a great walk with a variety of scenery in good weather.

A cracking weekend in North Wales with a small select group, staying at the Gwydyr MC Hut in Capel Curig. One car stopped en route in the Berwyns to do a circular walk from Llandrillo (SW of Llangollen), up onto the Berwyn Ridge and back, which turned out rather longer than planned after losing the path and negotiating bog and tussock grass for some distance, but the weather was warm […]
Tony’s report: Excellent week in a roomy well-equipped ex-hotel. Weather far better than last year, good walking every day except one with gales, and even that was good for low-level exploring. Landscape not the most dramatic, but many new Munros gained on some longish days. Dry weather previously treated us to dried up bog and easy river crossings We broke the mould this year with seven off us taking […]
