Lake District Weekend Update

Posted 8/3/2020

We have been unable to secure a booking for a meal for our large group on the Thursday evening so, unfortunately, people will have to make their own food arrangements on that evening. We will though arrange a meet up in a pub that evening to go through arrangements for the following day’s walk.

However, we have secured a booking at Lakeland Spice Cuisine in Keswick on the Friday evening which has been booked for the 23 people listed below. We will require a £10 deposit per person for the meal and will need everyone to let us know their order of Starter, Main Course and Sides by 19/04/20 at the very latest. Please let Steve Pennock, David Kirk or Andrea Turner know your order in good time before the deadline. Payment can be made to Steve, David or Andrea or by Paypal  using, also before 19/04/20. The menu is on our Photos page.

The list of names above for the meal is also the list of everyone who we are aware to be travelling up to be involved over the three days. If your name is not included above and you are intending walking with us in the Lake District then please let us know. Even if you don’t wish to join us for the meal we still wish to know who is planning on walking with us.

A bit more information on the first 2 walks: Friday’s walk is planned to be the relatively flat Seatoller to Keswick Walk of around 9.5 miles. Now the summer timetable has been released we are planning on catching the 9.20am Service 78 to Seatoller from Keswick bus station. It is understood the fare will be around £4.20.

For Saturday’s ascent of Blencathra we are intending catching the 10.20am Service X5 and getting off at the White Horse Inn at Scales rather than our original plan of Threlkeld which will reduce our walk to around 9.5 miles. It is understood that this fare will be around the £4 to £5 mark.
