Nights drawing in

Post by mac.hawk » 09 Sep 2015, 20:32

3 incidents in the last week where the Mountain Rescue team have been called out to help hikers struggling in the failing light - one as early as 19.09.

As a precaution please pack a torch of some sort if you're going to be out around/after sunset.

See http://www.thetimeandplace.info/uk#.VfCF15dZGdU for details of sunrise/sunset times (try Settle, Ingleton or Lancaster in the Search option for approx times) and also shows the hours of daylight available. Personally I'd be a bit wary of the latter as you should consider how cloud cover at either end of the day will affect the available light.
