Sept 29 - Sat Rods Walk at Ullswater. Rods last Wainwright was The Nab above Martindale, see here, so this walk in Rods memory is based on that area. The plan is to book a boat trip on the Ullswater Steamer for members, leaving Glenridding for Howtown mid-morning and returning around 5 pm and will be free to members (courtesy of Rod's legacy). There will be a number of options for walks of all grades (or you can just please yourself). Bring a picnic.
Ferry tickets need to be booked in advance so if you are interested in coming along you must let a member of the social sub-committee know by 31st May.
