Re: Walking weekend in Yorkshire 2019

Although time will be limited due to the walking and trips out I still think it’s worth reminding the more active among you that there is a spa and pool where you can keep up your fitness regime so don’t forget your swimming costumes and gym wear . Personally I prefer to do my exercises in the bar !

Re: Walking weekend in Yorkshire 2019

WE ARE FIVE WEEKS AWAY FROM THE EVENT SO I THINK IT A GOOD IDEA TO MENTION THAT DUE TO A NUMBER OF CANCELLATIONS THERE IS A LIMITED NUMBER OF PLACES AVAILABLE . IF ANY ONE KNOWS OF SOMEONE WHO MIGHT BE INTERESTED IN COMING TO YORKSHIRE FOR WHAT I HOPE WILL BE A FUN WEEKEND PLEASE CONTACT ME ON liptr...

Re: Walking weekend in Yorkshire 2019

Whichever way you choose to purchase your ticket once you arrive at Sheffield you will have to catch a different train to Elsecar . The trains are every 30 minutes and run from platform 4a ( please check that but I think I am correct ) the journey lasts approx 15 minutes . Once you arrive at Elsecar...

Re: Walking weekend in Yorkshire 2019

MY WIFE HAS JUST REMINDED ME THAT WHEN YOU PURCHASE YOUR TICKET FOR SHEFFIELD AT MANCHESTER IF YOU ASK FOR ELSECAR YOU WILL NOT HAVE TO PURCHASE ONE IN SHEFFIELD AND THE COST WILL BE THE SAME PROBALY THEREFORE SAVING YOU THE £5 FARE FROM SHEFFIELD TO ELSECAR
Sorry if this has caused any confusion

Re: Walking weekend in Yorkshire 2019

Hi Wybe Although Barnsley is closer to the venue Sheffield would be the preferred option as it is easier to get from Manchester to Sheffield than Barnsley . Trains from Manchester do not go directly to Barnsley but they do to Sheffield . Also some off peak trains do not stop at Elsecar on the Barnsl...

Re: Walking weekend in Yorkshire 2019

Hi Walkers It has come to my attention that anyone travelling from Manchester to either Barnsley or Sheffield would be advised to book the train fare now as there is a considerable difference in the price by booking early . For example Today you can get a single ticket leaving at 12.42 for £6.45 whi...

Re: Walking weekend in Yorkshire 2019

Re: Buxton, England 1st Sept.

Now,now Joe I know there is a lot of "fake news" around at the moment but I need to put the record straight . No doubt you have read Kens version of events on that fateful day in Barmouth when you refer to Jean and I being "thrown out " . I can assure you that was not the case after a "friendly" cha...
