Wainwright Society Members to start C2C on Wednesday

Wainwright Society Members start C2C on Wednesday

Myself and Judy along with fellow WS member Geoff Fielding will set out from St Bees on the C2C after alighting the Packhorse Bus at 10.30am on Wednesday. Margaret Stockdale will also be joining us and her husband Martyn (we hope) will be walking a section each day and then returning to his car to ferry our bags to the next B&B/Pub. I don't think Margaret has joined the brethren of the Wainwright Society yet, but we will be working on her during the walk....

Our first day is the usual distance for most Coast to Coaster's - from St Bees to Ennerdale Bridge and we will be staying at Ennerdale View in Kirkland, where they do an evening dinner. I hope to make some ham radio contacts from the summit of Dent on our way through - one of the Western Outlying Fells.
We are getting excited now (despite Wednesday's weather forecast!) and if I can get internet access along the route I will report progress here on the forum and my blog as we go along. We are booked through to walk to Reeth in 9 days. So we have a relatively easy day either side of the toughest day from Patterdale to Shap. We don't want to overstretch ourselves you see..... In September if all goes well, we will complete the rest of the walk towards our end at Robin Hood's Bay.

  1. Dent is a nice easy summit. Shame it isn't a Wainwright - I hadn't realized that it is a SOTA. Now I have a reason to visit it again with a radio.
