27 May 2017 Beecroft & Timble Plantations
We meet at 8am at the car park (has toilets) close to Swinsty & Fewston Reservoirs. The walk takes us along Fewston Reservoir before we turn into Beecroft Plantation. We later cross over near Anchor Farm into Timble Plantation and follow a land rover track around the woods before taking a road back through Timble Village. From there we drop down back to the car park for noon.
There are a couple of small hills but walking boots or wellingtons are advised as footwear.
10 June 2017 Stainburn to Swinsty
This walk is from the other car park overlooking Swinsty Reservoir which is situated near Fewston Village on the east side the Reservoir and we meet at 8am.
The walk takes us past Scargill and John O’Gaunt’s Reservoir & includes woodland where Redstart & Pied Flycatcher are seen. Those species may also be sighted in Swinsty Wood which we walk down through to return to the car park by noon. Most of the walk is downhill and stout shoes or walking boots are advisable.
If you wish to come on either outing but require transport assistance, please contact me to see if I can help, at least a week before the event.
