All places have now been booked for this meet.
I have booked spaces in this hut https://www.frcc.co.uk/venues/birkness/ for the nights of Friday 27th and Saturday 28th March 2020 to walk the Newlands Circuit on the Saturday. Leaving the hut at 8.00am, this walk will start and finish at the hut. We will be heading up Robinson straight up the path across the road behind the hut. From Robinson we’ll go to: Hindsgarth; Dale Head; across to High Spy; Maiden Moor and Cat Bells dropping down NW into Little Town. Then we go back up onto Causey Pike; Scar Crag; Sail; Eel Crag; Wandope; Whiteless Pike and back down into Buttermere village and then along the road a short distance back to the hut. I hope most people will do the full circuit which is about 23 miles but it is possible to cut the route short either by dropping down to Honister from Dale Head or by stopping in Little Town, but you’d need to sort your own transport to get back to the hut. I’ll provide a meal for Saturday night. There are only limited places available – 10 male and 7 female, so please book on early to reserve your place.
N.B. This walk now starts at 8am directly from the hut, NOT from Buttermere village as stated in meetstaff, so if you are joining us but not staying at the hut please meet at the hut and not in the village
