Weekend Away 2018

Each year in April we offer members the opportunity to enjoy a long weekend away. The main focus is walking on the Saturday and Sunday and we offer two walks on both days. A longer, more challenging walk of about 8 miles, as well as a gentler, shorter walk of about 5 miles. There is also the opportunity for non-walkers to enjoy sight-seeing and shopping in the area. The coach is at our disposal for the full four days and we use this to its full advantage by visiting places of interest en-route, on both the outgoing and incoming journeys to our destination. 

We aim to keep the cost down as much as possible and it is usually in the region of £200 for three nights half board at the hotel, two packed lunches and all coach travel. Pick up and drop off points are in the Penistone area.

The venue for the walking weekend holiday in 2018 is Darlington staying at: The Blackwell Grange Hotel, Blackwell Grange, Grange Road, Darlington, DL3 8QH
