Kettlewell Weekend 23rd February 2013

Kettlewell Weekend 23rd February 2013

Everybody arrived for the hostel at 7.30pm and after the evening meal most people sampled the two local pubs.

Saturday morning greeted us with a snowy scene with snow still falling, this kept walks to a lower level and two groups departed along slightly different routes with the intention of meeting in the pub at Buckden.

The main group followed the Dales way to the pub in Buckden where the snow was falling heavily.

After a drink we departed to Starbottom and on to Kettlewell, it had stopped snowing and turned into a nice afternoon.

The group had a three course meal in the hostel, finishing in one of the pubs.

On Sunday morning the snow had melted at low level and after breakfast the group split with some going to Grassington and some starting at Conistone doing a circular via Bull Scar and the Dales Way.

The sun came out putting a great finish to a great weekend.

Special thanks to Pete the warden and his helpers for their hospitality, great cooked breakfasts and evening meals.
