May Walk 2021
WELCOME HUBBERTON HIKERS TO OUR FIRST HIKE IN 25 MONTHS!!
The start-up hike on Saturday 22nd May will start from Ingfield Farm Shop Southowram. The walk will be circular and between 6 and 7 miles.
Will Hikers please note the start time for this hike will be 10AM. This is a one-off start time. The reason behind this is to enable everyone to have tea, cake and a pork pie/sandwich when the walk is completed, (If you don't wish to bring a sandwich, allowing you more time to get to the start).
I anticipate we will finish the hike around 13.53 which will allow us a good hour or so to relax, enjoy the sunshine and have a reyt good natter
Address: Law Farm, Law Ln, Southowram, Halifax HX3 9UG
Happy Hiking (AGAIN) 2021
