Poems, Memorials, Rocks and Trigs | Thursday 29 December 2022

Walk Leader: Lynn Hathaway
Participants: 10
Mileage: 13.4 miles
Ascent: 2,680 ft
Walk Report: Lynn Hathaway
Weather: A cold and gusting wind all day, a heavy shower early on then dry for the remainder of the day. 

Our final walk to finish the year's programme.  The walk took us from the Cow & Calf, where we were faced with strong winds, up to the 12 Apostles and then to the first trig point on Rombalds Moor, where the hail started.  Luckily, this was short lived and the rest of the walk a mixture of sun, wind & cold.  The second trig point, Rivock Edge had good views.  After a break in the shelter of the plantation of High Moor, we passed the now unfrozen spring, (on the recce it had created frozen reeds that looked like ice flowers), the doubler stones, reaching the third trig at Overgate Croft Farm on Addingham High Moor.  To avoid the boggy bits we descended to the Dales High Way.
