Sunday Walk Report 25 October 2020 Tier 3

Two groups set off in opposite directions from Langsett Barn car park at an earlier meet up time of 9.00 to overcome clock changes. It seems the rest of South Yorkshire had the same idea. However we were soon away from cars and people as we circled around Midhope and Langsett Reservoirs. Blue sky, far-reaching views and a blustery wind accompanied us most of the day. White horses galloped across the top of the water and we found new paths and pockets of woodland. Stops were made on a rickety bench for coffee and later a waterside retreat for lunch, where the only Castle Dipper was the dog. We visited the ruins of North America and had a history lesson when considering its name origin. A foray onto the moors took us onto Mickleden Edge and then back to the shoreline before the last section back to the cars. How the two groups never crossed I don’t know. The sub-group leader assures me he followed the route as instructed. Successful walk and clocked in at 9-10 miles – a little under estimation this week. Thank you all for the company.
