Mistletoe in Muggleswick

Mon 27th Dec 2021

Walk Details:

Event Type
Group Walk
Region / Area
Northern England / North Pennines
Local Group
Start Time
Start at Allensford car park, which is just outside Consett, near where the A68 crosses the River Derwent, NZ077502, DH8 9BA. Car Park is free. Michelle Orton will lead her first LDWA group social walk with Julie Carolan. For those of us looking for a post Christmas and Boxing Day walk to burn off a few excess calories and clear our heads, this looks perfect. 1994ft total ascent. Dogs welcome on leads

From Allensford head south west into Bog Wood. Follow tracks, minor roads to Muggleswick Park where the path is faint but head up and over to Edumundbyers where we will have our first break. Head out of Edmundbyers SW then east along to Lamb Shield Farm, before heading to Smiddle Shaw Reservoir where we will have lunch stop. After lunch return back to Allensford via footpaths through High Hosleyhope, Middle Hosleyhope, Warnely Hill and Bog Wood

General Notes
Dawn 7:45am, Dusk 4:31pm. Bring a torch just in case. Mistletoe is not indigenous to Muggleswick, so please bring your own
