Rail Travel

Just a quick note to look out for the new railway timetables that will be running from the 16th May 2021. Hopefully we'll get a service back to something near to what it was before Covid hit us - Northern Railway Timetable No 7 (Leeds-Settle-Carlisle) is the one to look for, you should be able to fi...

Ingleborough footpath closed

A section of the usual route 3 Peakers take up/down Ingleborough will be closed for repair works from Monday 27th July 2020 until early January next year (although it's hoped work will be finished before then). The section is basically the top end of Humphrey Bottom and the 'staircase' (the top end ...

Pen-Y-Ghent Cafe

Does anyone know the current status of the PYG Cafe in Horton?

Did it open last summer, is it open at all this winter?

Would be a real shame to see it lost.

7 more incidents for the CRO to deal with since my original posting, most of whom were lost & benighted (i.e. lost on the hills after dark with no light source).

Re: Yet more CRO rescues!

Yes indeed God bless the CRO, although at the time of posting I was referring to an incident on the 28th Sept when a group of 3 Peakers got lost and benighted coming off Ingleborough. On such a long walk anyone can have an accident or have a health issue but to be generally unprepared/ill equipped i...
