Bank Holiday Monday 1st May:
I will be leading a “Spring-Time Saunter” walk. About 7 miles, (3.5 each way) partly on roads, also footpaths. Meet Mount Tabor cross-roads by the New Inn at 10.30. (Top of Pellon Lane.)
Bring picnics, drinks, emergency warm gear. We will go up to and past Fly Flats Reservoir, to the point we can see down to Oxenhope.
It can be perishing up there even though it’s nice lower down. (Or refreshing !)
This is to start planning the full trek to and from Haworth later in the summer, as written about in the famous book by Whiteley Turner, “A Spring-Time Saunter” who did it with a mate on 4th May 1905. (Actually they made it into a 4 day hike round Bronte country, with two stops at Haworth.)
My interest in the Spring-Time Saunter awakened by the talk we are looking forward to on September 12th organised by Charlotte ” Uncovering Bronte Country”, when Diane Fare of the Bronte Parsonage Museum is coming to talk for us at the Central Library.
