Peaks Trip Itenary
At 5pm we leave uni heading for the Peak district, aiming to arrive between
9pm and 10pm. Our accommodation is a camping barn in the very heart of the
Peaks. En route well stop off at a service station for a bite to eat, feel
free to bring your own food if you wish.
Rising fairly early we head off for a full days hiking (B,2 grade). This is
likely to be around Kinder Scout Area in order for the older members to
teach new freshers the art of bog surfing. As usual we aim to finish the
walk at a pub however well probably be staying longer to enable people to
buy a cooked dinner here if they wish. Then we return to the barn for an
On the last day of our trip well be doing a shorter walk (probably not more
than 4 or 5 miles) aiming to finish in one of the Peak districts pretty
towns or villages. Well be departing around 3pm with the aim of arriving
home between 7 and 8pm in the evening.
Price of the trip will be £30 and includes everything except food. You will
also need to bring:
Sleeping bag (and roll mat if you have one).
Food for the duration of the trip
Plenty of spare clothing
Usual hiking equipment (boots etc)
Money for a pub meal (if you would like one)
The barn is equipped with cooking utensils, a couple of hobs and a
microwave. We think there might be a fridge but were not sure
the barn doesnt have is a shower so we advise you to have one just before
you leave home!! If anyone has lectures 5- 6pm on Friday and wishes to come
please tell a committee member and well arrange to leave slightly later.
