The group de­scended down the Nan Bield Pass to the vil­lage of Kent­mere, then the long re­turn to Stave­ley along good tracks and paths.

The next level of walk was the B walk at 11.5 miles led by Marj Hal­l­i­day.

The group climbed steadily up to Brunt Knot farm and then took paths over the fell to de­scend at Nether House Farm, walk­ing on to Cocks Close be­fore their se­cond climb of the day to Gur­ral Dubs and Pot­ter Tarn.

For their re­turn jour­ney they took field paths and some coun­try lanes un­til they came to Haggs Foot bridge on the River Kent, now newly built. They were able to cross and fol­low the river­side path back into Stave­ley.

Val Hen­nessey led a mod­er­ate C walk of 8.75 miles guid­ing her group up to Pot­ters Tarn and Gur­ral Dubs.

Their de­scent took them through fields and coun­try lanes to the vil­lage of Bow­ston, where they joined the Dales Way along the River Kent to Stave­ley.

Jacque­line Shep­herd headed out the same way with her D party, hav­ing a short climb be­fore they de­scended to paths along the River Kent and to the vil­lage of Bow­ston, fol­low­ing the Dales Way back into Stave­ley vil­lage.

The weather fore­cast was not bril­liant and the hik­ers did have some down­pours but th­ese re­sulted in the for­ma­tion of some stun­ning rain­bows

And to greet them in Stave­ley was a visit to the brew­ery, where most walk­ers par­took in the sam­pling of its fine beers.

The group’s next trip is to Mal­ham, a very pop­u­lar venue.
