January 2018 Walk: Thursday, 11 January, 10.30 start


This 6 mile  walk is from Hampsthwaite village centre, Grid re: SE 259587. Part of it is along a stretch of the riverside which, when we checked yesterday (Friday), was very muddy so sticks are recommended; though a relatively short walk, the stiles, perhaps soggy fields and mud should provide a good workout ! (But you can be rewarded  with delicious refreshments afterwards at Sophie's Kitchen in the village).


Hampsthwaite is off the A59 Harrogate-Skipton Road; turn right at the first turning after the Otley-Ripon roundabout. Parking is with permission  in the Memorial Hall car park on the right hand side of the road into the centre of the village, just before the T -junction with the High Street. We are asked to make a donation; this includes permission to use the toilets in the Hall.


Looking  forward to seeing you
