Saturday 25th to Monday 27th November. Weekend in Alstonfield, Derbyshire. The proposed walking programme is a short walk on Saturday, starting at 11.00 from Hartington car park, a walk of about 9 miles on Sunday and maybe a short walk on Monday - the latter could be a field exercise involving navigational skills. Accommodation will be in the YHA . The hostel has rooms each with 4-bunks, and each with en-suite and bedding. There is a large sitting/kitchen/dining room enabling members to self-cater for breakfasts and packed lunches. It is envisaged that we’ll eat-in on Saturday night, with Geoff Manning leading the meal preparation. For Sunday shall eat in the local pub.

Although there will be a short walk on Saturday from Hartington, arrival at the YHA must not be before 15.00 on Saturday and departure must be by 10.00 on the Monday. We will have sole use of the main Hostel, plus overspill into the adjacent building. The price is £35 per person. Interested members should inform Anita (07885 518 388) ASAP.


Sunday 3rd December. Christmas Lunch at the Greyhound Inn, Lutterworth. Julie Nelson will issue details during November.


Sunday 10th December, Hartshill Hayes Country Park is near Nuneaton.


Sunday 17th December, Bradgate Park. Meet at 10.00 at Newtown Linford. Walk goes through Woodhouse Eaves returning via Lingford.


Sunday 28th January, Hungarton. The walk will take in Qeenby, Lowerby and Baggrave Halls.


Friday 11th to Sunday 13th May 2018 - Spring Walking Weekend, Minehead, Somerset. Distance from Lutterworth is around 170 miles with travel time around 3.5 hours. The proposed base is the Premier Inn, Minehead, which has a Brewers Fayre attached. This is a new hotel and those intending to participate should book as soon as possible to avoid price rises; currently the web site shows the following prices for a double room or twin room (wifi free but breakfast not included):

Non refundable   (Cancellation up to the day)

Thursday night  £30 (£46); Friday   £33.50 (£51); Saturday  £38 (£58); Sunday   £29.50 (£45); Monday  £29.50 (£40)

Chargeable on-site parking is available at £4 per night.

The proposed walking programme is a walk on Friday pm, then day walks Saturday and Sunday, with locations likely to be the Quantocks, Exmoor and/or Southwest Coastal Path.
