May 2017 - Yorkshire Dales

The Yorkshire Dales National Park includes some of the finest limestone scenery in the UK, from crags and pavements to an underground labyrinth of caves. Each valley or 'dale' has its own distinct character, set against expansive heather moorland tops. Spectacular waterfalls and ancient broadleaved woodland contrast with the scattered remains of former mine workings and other rural industries which remind us of the area's rich industrial heritage.

Cromwell Mountain Club will be walking amongst this beautiful scenery in May and you are invited to join us.

July 2017 - Derbyshire

Glenbrook Guide Centre in the Hope Valley in Derbyshire will be our home over the weekend of 14-16 July. With easy walking straight from the door or remote moorland walking, ghyll scrambling and weaselling a short drive away, this promises to be another great trip for all, including the younger Scouts, as long as those under 12½ years come with a Troop leader.
