Hi John Just a few information bites about Black Sail Youth Hostel Weekend September 22/23 2017.

Black Sail - Brilliant Location at the Head of Ennerdale. People staying will need to walk or mountain bike in.

16 beds are available. Price for weekend £76.50. This includes Breakfast on Saturday/ Sunday. And Evening Meal on Friday/Saturday. It's pricey compared to other locations - but there are very few locations like this! In order to reserve a place you need to pay a deposit of £50.00. Sorry about the size of this - but if we don't pay up soon - we loose the chance of staying there.  Any questions Andy 07504926007.

December Mob walk

The weather forecast had dire warnings for travel so very limited turn out Average age of the walkers was 70 y.o. There was just a small amount f snow on roads. But the regular track up Pendle hill was hard packed snow hence slippery. Took took the cross country route to Ogden Clough about 6ins of soft snow. Very few people out on the tops. Sorry the younger members were all at home watching City week in fact all back home before kick off
