The Last One!

On Sunday, 18th December, Phil Barker led the last SRC A-walk on the 2011 programme card. The walk commenced at Osmotherley and finished in Carlton-in-Cleveland. We covered a distance of about 16 miles and this involved a total ascent of about 1800 feet.

During our trek we visited Beacon Hill, Whorlton Moor, Swainby Shooting House, Barker's Ridge, Barker's Crags, Brian's Pond, Carlton Glider Station and Lord Stones before descending steeply off the moors in order to reach our final destination - the Blackwell Ox hostelry in Carlton!

The weather was excellent (lots of sunshine) and the conditions underfoot were superb - with a thin scattering of snow on the high ground (but not enough to impede our progress).

There were nine people in the group. The photo below shows the A-team as it approached the minor road near Scarth Nick Moor. Click on the picture in order to see a larger version - and some of the other photos that we took.

Please don't foget that the next set of coached walks will be on 8th January, 2012. These will start in the Chop Gate/Clay Bank area and will finish in Stokesley.

Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.
Keep on walking!

Many thanks to Jane Thompson and Phil Barker for taking the photographs.
