January 2016 Version of 'The Guide'

A January 2016 version of 'The Guide' is now available (see Forum entry 'October 2015 version of The Guide' for specific details) . It contains absolutely no amendments to the October version other than the slightest of 'tweaks' to the rail times due to the Winter rail timetable coming into effect as 13th Dec 2015 & the rail fare increases as of 3rd January 2016 (they are very minimal).

I've also added a little more information regarding rail ticket pricing, where you can make some decent savings (particularly if you book in advance if traveling from the Carlisle end of the line)

Due to personal commitments I have not walked the area since mid-October so there are currently no changes to the route guide.

For those so interested I have also posted a comment (and an external link) on the General Discussion section of the Forum regarding the change in ownership of the Northern Rail franchise (from April 2016) and it's effect on the rail service to the area.

Finally, throughout 2015 a number of people have made generous donations to the Clapham Cave (and Mountain) Rescue Team via the Just Giving website (https://www.justgiving.com/caverescue/raisemoney/) and I'd like to go on record in thanking them, especially as everyone has given such kind comments towards the guide and/or myself. I'd also like to thank anyone who has donated via the charity tubs in the local pubs & cafes.

I wish everyone a happy and healthy 2016 ..................... if it ever stops raining!
