This walk follows the route taken by Lady Anne Clifford, when she was travelling north from her castle in Skipton to visit her other castles at Pendragon and Lammerside. Walking along by the River Eden between Mallerstang and Wild Boar Fell, we cross fields, walk by the river, pass the castles and finally see a beautiful waterfall before following the Poet's Trail into Kirkby Stephen.



This summer the Saturday coach programme is very varied. We start at High Cup Nick in the North Pennines with its breathtaking views and then head for the Peak District, first following a different route from Chatsworth to Bakwell and visiting the estate village of Edensor. In June we walk another new route to Wardlow before heading down Cressbrookdale with its beautiful spring flowers and going across the viaduct at Monsal Head. The final visit takes us along the Great Ridge again with spectacular views. In August and September we are back in the North Pennines with two walks finishing in the interesting town of Kirkby Stephen, the first one taking us along the Upper Eden Valley with its ruined castles and beautiful waterfalls and the second exploring Smardale Gill before finishing on a section of Wainwright's Coast to Coast route.

At this point we need to ask for help, firstly to increase the numbers coming on the Saturday coach to make it financially viable and also to boost the recce team. We need more people to increase the numbers available to lead and back-mark each month. The existing team cannot always be available. If the numbers coming on the coach and the size of the recce team do not increase, then unfortunately the Saturday coach trip will have to be discontinued. Please help!!
