A guided half day walk as part of a small group to climb the hill called Winder. This is in the part of Cumbria that falls within the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
If Covid-19 social distancing is still in place then we'll take a maximum of five people, or if restrictions are relaxed by then we'll allow up to six people plus your guide.
Starting from the small town of Sedbergh, we set off up the hillside using a path that forms part of the long distance Dales High Way into the range of hills called The Howgills. We then take a path up the broad grassy ridge to the summit of Winder. On a clear day there are wonderful views from here over the town and to the hills and moorlands beyond. Our descent is by a different route on paths and a little lane.
The distance is about 4 1/2 miles/7 kilometres with approximately 410 metres of ascent on paths that are steep in places and could be slippery if wet.
The price is £22 per person. Please book and pay below. You are booking with Cath Lee who will guide the walk on the day.
We meet at about 9:15am to be ready to set off at 9:30am in the Joss Lane car park, in the town of Sedbergh. It's just off the main street (a one way street), and is the car park next to the public toilets. The nearest post code is LA10 5AS but a sat nav might not take you to the exact location with that. The car park is a Pay & Display and costs £4.50 per day.
