    Walking Event – Coastal Cumbria
    Dec 9 all-day

    We have teamed up with the Outdoor Partnership in Cumbria to run a number of free walking events. These events are specifically aimed at introducing residents of Copeland & Allerdale to our incredible green spaces.

    These events include minibus transportation to and from local pick-up points, starting at Whitehaven Library at 10.00am. Details of all pick-up points, timings, and what to wear / fetch will be included in an information pack that is sent out after booking confirmation.

    Further details of this walk can be found on our JustGo platform.

    Walking Event – Langdale Pikes
    Dec 9 all-day

    A quintessential lake district valley, picture perfect in almost every way, Great Langdale is home to some of the finest fell walking England has to offer, and this walk takes in some of the best of the best.

    Once we have all gathered in the National Trust car park near the Stickle Ghyll, we will start to make our way up the path next to the stream, offering great views of the cascades and waterfalls right out of the gate. It does this at a price however, as it is a steep path with some uneven steps up to Stickle Tarn. Once at the Tarn we will take in the cliff face of Pavey Ark, and maybe spot some brave climbers making their ascents, before heading around the back up to the first peak of the day, Harrisons Stickle. After this is a short descent down, before reascending up to Pike of Stickle, and then again to Loft Crag. We will then return down to the valley floor for a much needed refreshment.

    Further details on location, and how to book, can be found on our JustGo platform.

    Starting at Carrington Coffee’s new shop (Bold) in Hest Bank, we will follow the Lancashire Way to Bolton-le-Sands before returning back to the shop via Lancaster Canal path.  The walk will give us excellent views across Morecambe Bay and plenty of opportunity to take photos.  We will then return to our vehicles at Carrington’s Coffee for a free beverage and social time to complete the event!

    Walking Event – Durdle Door
    Dec 16 all-day

    Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door (on the Jurassic Coast in Dorset, England). The surroundings are beautiful, and we’ll be treated to panoramic views and crystal clear waters on the stretch of this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Lulworth Cove in particular is one of the finest examples of this type of land formation and was formed by the combined force of the sea and a river swollen by melting ice at the end of the last Ice Age. Lulworth Cove is world famous for its unique geology and landforms including the Lulworth Crumple and Stair Hole.

    Durdle Door is probably the most famous stone arch anywhere in the world. It was created when the sea pierced through the Portland limestone around 10,000 years ago. Looking west over the beach, isolated stacks out at sea show where an older coastline once lay. This part of the coast is formed from merged bays and gives us a glimpse of how Lulworth Cove and Stair Hole may look in several thousand years’ time.

    Walking Event – Robin Hoods Bay to Whitby
    Jan 13 all-day

    This will be a linear walk from Robin Hood’s Bay to Whitby, which will require use of public transport.  We will meet at Whitby Train Station and, from there will catch a bus to Robin Hood’s Bay to start our walk.

    Robin Hood’s Bay is a picturesque old fishing village on the Heritage Coast of the North York Moors.  Wandering through its narrow, twisting cobbled streets and alleyways, you can easily imagine the sailors and fishermen, smugglers and press gangs that walked these streets hundreds of years ago.

    From Robin Hood’s Bay we will join the Cleveland Way, which will take us to Whitby via a coastal path along towering cliffs, which will provide dramatic views of the coastline.

    We will pass the stunning ruins of Whitby Abbey before descending cobbled streets into Whitby itself – home of Captain Cook and the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula.  There are many excellent shops, pubs and restaurants in Whitby, so plenty of opportunity to explore in the afternoon.

    Booking details can be found on our JustGo Platform.
