Please report by between 9.45 and 10.00 at the originally arranged point i.e. outside the Tourist Information Office (temporarily closed) at the main Glenridding car park. You will then be re-directed to a nearby location where you can park for the whole time ( a single all day charge of £3 per vehicle is due in the box by the gate of this location).
We will then walk from this location back to Glenridding pier to start the trip. We will return to the cars for a lunch stop and then walk to the other side of the valley via Side Farm for the afternoon session. This will involve a short ascent up to a rough path which will give us fine views over the surrounding area and access to outcrops of the local volcanic rocks.
Facilities [toilets, hot drinks, shop] are available at Glenridding. Leader John Rodgers 01768 895743 mob. 07816769918 but be aware there is poor network single around this area.
