Sunday 12th May 2013

Oxfordshire  -  Vale of White Horse
This was a visit to the rolling hills of Oxfordshire.   White 
Horse Hill is a gem with some of the best prehistoric sites 
and views along a classic section of the famous Ridgeway.
There where two planned walks available, a longer walk of about
10 miles and a shorter route of 6 miles.

"A" walk  -  about 10 miles.   This will include some steep 
ascents and descents starting at the National Trust car
park at the White Horse.   The walk takes in the White
Horse and the Iron Age fort of Uffington Castle, at the
highest point in the county (857 feet)  with spectacular 
views across Oxfordshire.   The route then follows the
Ridgeway until descending to the lovely villages of Letcombe
Bassett and Letcombe Regis, with a pub stop, and following
Letcombe Brook into Wantage Town, the birthplace of King
Alfred, where the walk finishes.

"B" walk  -  This walk will start some 4 miles further along 
the Ridgeway and also offers great views across the Vale 
of the White Horse, with an optional visit to Letcombe Castle 
available.   The route descends into Letcombe Basset following
the same path as the longer walk.   There will be more time
for a stop at the lovely village of Letcombe Regis where there 
is a pub and nature reserve to visit and the market town of
Wantage, home to King Alfred.   There are many places to eat
and drink and visit in this quaint market town.

Shirley handled the bookings

Sunday 23rd of June 2013
 
Along the Derbyshire Skyline and Chatsworth House
This trip was last undertaken in 2004 and there have been a 
a number of requests to return to this lovely venue.   This trip
offers a deal of variety with three options available.

Both the longer (8.5 miles and 490ftof ascent)  and shorter
walks  (6 miles and 230ft of ascent)  walk along the gritstone
edges of Froggatt, Curbar and Baslow to admire the formations
created by years of weathering.   On reaching the southern end
of the Edges, the shorter walk descends to the village of
Baslow, with a pub visit, and the beautiful parkland of Chastworth,
whereas the longer walk continues high above Chatsworth House,
across moorland to the Wellington Memorial, Birchen Edge,and
Dobb Edge before descending into the Chatsworth parkland.

Those not wishing to walk, can visit the beautiful ancestral home
of the Duke & Duchess of Devonshire, Chatsworth House, with
walks inthe stunning gardens and parkland created by the
notable Capability Brown.
