Event Description

Greetings all Mob people

The date that I had hoped to secure the Black Sail Hut is no longer available.

Instead we have a chance of the first weekend in September.

Black Sail is at the end of Ennerdale and it the most remote Hostel in England. It is simply an iconic location and a weekend there is something to cherish. All around are some of the Lakes most loved hills

There are 16 beds in the hostel and it would be great to use it all. Though potentially we could just use the beds that are signed up for.

The cost for the weekend is £76.50. This includes evening meals Friday and Saturday and breakfast - which is a treat in itself on Saturday and Sunday. You will not be hungry.

You will need to walk in - from Buttermere is the quickest or Mountain Bike down the valley.

If you want to let me come you need to let me know at latest by Monday 26/9/16. The reason is that they will hold the booking until then and unless I pay £120 next week the booking will fold.

If you want to book on sign up in the usual way - but please text me on 0754926007 as well - that way I can sort something out about payment

Thanks Andy
