This year's Hot-Pot Supper outing takes us to the area or
South Lakes not previously visited by the club. Cartmel
justifiably is regarded as a beautiful Lakeland village and the
surrounding countryside is full of pleasant views and comfortable
walking. Sunday, February 14th is the date and it is always a
popular event so do book early. There will be a short toilet stop
on the outward journey at Burton. The coach will leave school at
8.00 a.m. prompt and we hope to return by 8.30 p.m. The cost
stays the same at £4.00 for adults and £2.00 for children. The
Hot-Pot meal will cost £4.50 to members, inclusive of main
course, choice of sweet, tea or coffee, which as last year will
be after a subsidy from club funds - exceptional value, you will
agree! Will members please indicate below on the attached return
slip, their choice of main meal. We must insist that on the day
you adhere to your selected choice as meals are ordered in
advance. The meal will be at the Lindale Inn Payment by cheque
only please and return slips should be attached and sent to
Barbara Craine, school office by Thursday, 4th February 1993.
Remember book early.
Starts 1 mile S.E. of Newby Bridge G.R. 383850. From here we walk north up through the Chapel House Plantation to the high point (Raven Scar) with views over Windermere. The route then turns S.W. across fields and open ground to the Bigland Hall Estate where fine coastal views are to be seen from Bigland Heights. We then continue predominately south to the village of Cartmel, famous for its racecourse and Priory, which has recently been visited by H.R.H Queen Elizabeth. From Cartmel we make a fairly steep ascent onto Hampsfield Fell, a popular viewpoint with a summit monument. The descent north-easterly leads us to our finish in Lindale and a well earned Hot-Pot supper.
The route is a shortened version of that taken by the 'A' party. Starts at the same place as the 'A' party but heads S.W. via fields to Bigland Hall. From Bigland Heights extensive views of Morecambe Bay and unusual sightings of Coniston Fells can be had. We then wend our way to Cartmel, a beautiful village surrounding the famous Priory, which if time allows could be briefly visited. We climb Hampfield Fell (slowly) to the hospice at its summit. Views through 360 degrees are extensive Descending through woods and field paths we make our way to Lindale for sustenance.
