Sunday 14th October 2018 - Pateley Bridge, North Yorkshire

This month our walks are based on Pateley Bridge, North Yorkshire.   The coach will leave school as usual at 8.00 am prompt and travel direct to Pateley Bridge where there are toilets and where all the walks start and finish. Boots are essential on all walks.  After enjoying refreshments in Pateley Bridge we will depart at 5.30pm and should be back in Formby about 7.30pm.

The cost of travel will be £14.00 for members, £17.00 for non-members and £5.00 for Leaders, children and students in full time education. Please note the changed coach fare. Please make your cheque payable to Range Walking Club and ensure it is signed as it is inconvenient for the Treasurer to chase up such omissions.

Please book by email and pay online or send in your return to the Treasurer Monica Sealey before 4th October; places will be booked on the coach by the treasurer on a first come first served basis.

Cancellations: if you need to cancel or make a late booking, please contact the Treasurer on 01704 809287 or by email who will endeavour to substitute your booking from the waiting list.  If you cancel after 4th October and it is not possible to fill your place on the coach, regrettably, we will not be able to give you a refund as coaches will have been booked on initial returns.

We make our way up the High Street to the aptly named Panorama View path and then follow the scenic Nidderdale Way to the spectacular geological feature of Brimham Rocks.

After passing three interesting sculptures at the railway turntable we follow the footpath beside the River Nidd to Glasshouses. 
We then cross fields to Harewell Hall where we use the footbridge to cross the river and go to the pretty hamlet of Smelthouses where we join the Nidderdale Way. 
The route takes us through woods alongside Fellbeck before turning west and following the panoramic route back to Pateley Bridge.
