Week 2: Sunday Walk in Thornton-le-Dale
A beautiful chocolate box village situated on the fringe of the North Yorshire Moors National Park. The village is renowned for it's pretty thatched cottages, becks and streams and the wild moors scenery is a must! Also, the village is only 30 miles north-east of York, so it'll be a short coach journey there and back.
We'll take a coach to Thornton-le-Dale, and from there split into two groups, one group takes a medium-length walk whilst the second group take on a larger route. Both walks are preplanned and lead by our trained walk leaders.
Medium walks are generally between 6 and 8 miles (10-13 km) long, and tend to be at a reasonably gentle pace and always include a stop for a pub lunch. Long walks are slightly more challenging and are between 10 and 12 miles (16-19 km) long and don't include a pub lunch but instead stop for a packed lunch along the way. At 4.00pm all the groups meet back at the coach and return back to the University, arriving no later than 6.00pm.
