Walking Meet - Saturday 21st January - Earl Crag

Post by Alice »

Having cancelled last weekend's walk due to the weather let's try again for this Saturday 21st January.

Meeting at 9:30am at Cowling, Holy Trinity Church.
Parking: On street parking outside Cowling Holy Trinity Church BD22 0DF

Route: A big loop around Keighley Moor and Earl Crag from Cowling.
From the church we’ll walk westerly down Nan Scar road and pick up the Pennine Way footpath on the left to head south, crossing the A6068. We’ll continue on that path up Eller Hill and onto Ickornshaw Moor as far as Old Bess Stone. Turning east onto a permissive path to Keighley Moor Reservoir we’ll then pick up the Millennium Way to a road at Morkin Bridge where we’ll begin to head north again towards Round Hill and then NW on the footpath to Scar Holes. At this point we’ll cross over the road and go East along the top Earl Crag to Lund’s Tower and then zig zag down to Glusburn Green and a quick pub stop. The final couple of miles will be on roads and the river path back to Cowling church.

The route should be about 20km (12 miles) but when we get to the top of Earl Crag there are various options to head straight back to Cowling to shorten the route.

Post up if you would like to join. Car sharing encouraged.

See you there,
Alice

Ah lovely. Will be great to see you all!
Sorry you can’t make this one James. If you fancy coming along to the AGM on Monday you’ll hear more about what we do as a club, and put a few names to faces, but otherwise hopefully see you on the Feb walking meet.

Hi Alice. As I would still have to drive to Bingley from Saltaire I think I will take my car, but thanks for the offer. Otherwise do you pass through here Rachel and could I hop in with you please?
