For those that want to get back to nature, here are two linked events that I think some of you might enjoy!
Further to my previous post about the hill walk, I'd like to propose the following:CAMPING at Sowerby Bridge - Fri15-Sun17Aug
Graafen's planning on going camping at Sowerby Bridge on the 14th-16th of August, and for those that want to join him they're more than welcome to! I'm going to be camping too for that period of time.
There is no real meeting up time etc, because everyone's going to arrive from different parts of the country. But please post a response here if you're going to come camping, when you're going to arrive and how big your tent is. That way, we can keep some space around our tents for you where possible, so the furs are camping near each other.
I'm not sure exactly which camp site Graafen has in mind at this stage - will edit this post soon!
Sowerby Bridge is quite close to Hebden Bridge, so on the Saturday we can join in the other proposed event:HILL WALK at Hebden Bridge - Sat16Aug
On the saturday, let's meet up at 12noon at Hebden Bridge railway station. From there, we can walk to the canal and start the walk as per my previous post. Please note, it is a moderately challenging walk, but we can take a bit longer about it if we like. There are some nice places along the way we can take a break at.
Depending on how we do, we should finish any time between 4pm and 5.30pm.
Trains serve Hebden Bridge station from Leeds, Burnley and Manchester Victoria quite frequently.
Calderdale Council has provided a map with where you can park in Hebden Bridge: http://www.calderdale.gov.uk/transport/parking/carparks/town.jsp?town=hebdenbridge
(the station is just off the bottom right of the map - you can see "ation Road").
