Helping the Bury Jubilee Outdoor Pursuits Centre

Dave Dickson and I have been involved for a long time but I have now left the area and Dave is probably reaching his last fifty years of useful service (sorry to be so blunt, Dave).

Putting Something Back

If you are from near Bury (Lancashire) and love the outdoors, want to promote opportunities for young people to enjoy the Lakes at minimal cost, have enjoyed using the Bury…

High Mountain trip Next Year

I am keen to get to the Himalayas or perhaps the Andes next year. I'd prefer to go with trusted cronies - so if you might be keen on the same thing please let me know, otherwise I'll book on an Exodus trip (I had to explain to Caroline this is not a one way journey to Switzerland!) in October as an individual.

Saunders Lakeland Mountain Marathon 2016

Great to be out with Tony Hewitson this weekend in weather that was cold wet and windy (Sat) and not much better (Sun). Good navigation and steady pace got us halfway up the field. Up for next year with (hopefully) a strong MoB presence.

Tough on the Streets - cushy in the pub

Derek's Street Orienteering idea turned out to be an absolute cracker!

6 brave competitors took to Rammy's notorious roadways. All of them returned (5 on time). Undisputed champion was Nigel (590 points) closely followed by Elliot (500) with a great performance from veteran Dave Dixon (340) who still had the energy to pursue a spurious argument about a control being in someone's garden (come on Dave it was night time!). There were commendable performances by Barry and…

Thanks for the loan of the harnesses.
We missed the walk today as I spent longer getting my mum's new tv to work than I thought I would and I didn't ralise the drive was an hour away. However Amy and I made up for it with a great afternoon at Troy Quarry instead- using her new harness!

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
