Sunday Fell Walking
There is a private Coach every week from Barrow, calling at Dalton, Ulverston & other points if required.
Departs Barrow 08:30 or 09:00 depending on destination.
Choice of three walks for different capabilities:
- A Party – Challenging walks over several higher mountain peaks, typically 10 to 16 miles with ascents of 3000 to 5000 feet.
- B Party – Moderate walks over some high mountain peaks, typically 8 to 14 miles with total ascents of 2000 to 3500 feet.
- C Party – Typically 7 to 10 miles over lower mountains slopes with total ascents generally less than 1200 feet.
Distances are less in winter due to shorter daylight hours.
The use of the Coach allows linear walks, sometimes ending in a different valley. There is always time for a refreshing drink, and a crack with the other parties before departing on the homeward journey.
Arranged on 2nd & 4th Wednesday of each month – Transport by member’s cars
