From Bradwell last night, led by Al Ward across every valley he could find, including Cavedale and Winnats, where we climbed the hill just to come back down it again. He even took us to look at the top access point of Titan, which I could not have found unaided, and another bit of cave system near Dirtlow Rake, details of which Gavin has found here. Good running and a very respectable turnout although at least two managed to lose the pack after about a minute and did their own route, perhaps more of that later. We finished in the Bowling Green pub. And....me (Chris Barber) and Neil Woods (a newcomer, all the way from Oldham!) having stopped for a slash at the start were amazed to find that everyone had buggered off and left us, (bastards) so we went for a run on our own!

A steady start to the true warting season and a more normal turn out. Mr Harmer had returned from his African journey, so normal service was resumed! None of this wild abandoned running....back to the bog-trotting and bracken/heather bashing, strange how we missed it. It was David Holmes'(Holmes, the elder) birthday, so cake was provided at the start. Some of greedier members consumed it at Hordron Edge stone circle but the more restrained managed to control their cravings until Crow Chin rocks, where the second whisky stop of the night was had, the first being an early nip at the stone circle. After this the usual battle across bog and tussocks was enjoyed all the way back to the cars at Redmires.

With Royal Dungworth just around the corner, and bearing in mind we'll not be wartin' from Dungworth this year, here's a clue for anyone in daylight search of the Limpopo ... a short wart November 18th 2009 taking in Rod Moor trig to boot.

Just to clarify, we left Dungworth off the official list this year because it's a good "fallback" should we need an awayday and can't get to the nether regions of the Dark Peak

In the absence of Capt. Harmer, on leave in Kenya, some 20 keen runners (as opposed to scramblers, walkers etc), set off to Rivelin Needle and Rod Moor, back via the Headstone, Ocean View (almost) and the (moist) culvert by the water works. Nothing much to report, Lucy had the only whisky flask, which was a bit of a disappointment and much running was done by all, (see previous comment). A good opener for the real stuff to come. 8.55 miles, 1635 feet (the wonders of technology!) And... there was absolutely no trespassing, not a bit of it.. all on access land or public footpaths!

Seems a while since the last Warts T shirt was released so thoughts are in progress on a new Winter 2010/2011 design.

The Warts have their first meeting of the season tomorrow evening from Bradwell. I think the meeting point is on the main road in to the village, by the playing field. Check the website for any changes. Newcomers are welcome but please read the safety note on the website.  Though one of our aims is to keep things informal, personal safety should be uppermost in everybody’s mind. We do run as a group but it is our individual responsibility to be able to get back to the transport or keep yourself, or others, warm if something goes wrong. Basic equipment to be carried should include:-

  • Head torch plus spare batteries or backup micro LED torch
  • Map, compass and whistle
  • Full waterproofs & body cover plus hat and gloves and spare thermal top
  • Food
  • Survival bag – light weight, foil type, for example
  • Hip Flask with decent whisky or other spirit! - very important and not your cheap Tesco stuff, we're all connoisseurs!!
Some Warts do carry additional safety gear but don’t rely on this as they don’t always turn up. We do operate an informal ‘car share’ system, by word of mouth, so do ring round if you can offer a lift or are stuck for transport. If you want any further information then contact Mark Harvey (0780 258 7598) or Tom Westgate (0773 406 6386) Mark
