Xerox Hiking Club 2018 Calendar
|Fr 16 to Su 18 Feb.||White Peak District – NT Ilam Bunkhouse
This is a very comfortable bunkhouse. It’s close to Dovedale and if, as happened this year, the ground is extremely wet and muddy, there are opportunities for walks on harder paths.
|Fr 6 to Su 8 April||South Downs Way, NT Slindon
Another National Trust property, on a nice inland section of the South Downs Way. Not too distant for most members.
|Fr 11 to Su 13 May||It’s back!!! in the middle of the Yorkshire 3 peaks, The old school house in Chapel Le Dale, what’s more to say.
Martin is the organiser
|Fr 29 June to Su 1 July||Another regular feature, Peak District – Camping Edale -As usual, John Adams is the organiser|
|Th 9 to Mo 13 Aug||It’s a 4 nighter, though you can come for shorter if you wish. It’s the Lakes District, it’s a long drive and it’s the school holidays so make it a family break. This will be our third visit to the Bury Outdoor centre in Glenridding. It’s a large and comfortable venue, with ensuite bedrooms and, should it be needed, a large drying room. The location is great at the foot of Hellwellyn and above Ullswater and with 4 nights there are opportunities to explore further.
|Th 20 to Su 23 Sept||Pembrokeshire, another distant venue and new ground for the Club, and again because of the distance we booked it for 3 nights.
|Fr 2 to Su 4 Nov.||Not far from Sevenoaks in Kent, in a clearing and surrounded by woods, the Octavia bunkhouse is surprisingly remote. The date should enable us to enjoy some of the autumn colours and gather some chesnuts to be roasted on the outdoor fire.
