CLAPHAM WALK: The forecast wasn’t brilliant but for the most part we remained dry. The stunning Autumn colours more than made up for a bit of early morning drizzle and whist the views from the top of Ingleborough were non existent, all the groups all had a great day out. We welcomed another new Leader, John Cooper, who aided by a number of regulars on the B-Team, got everyone around safely having enjoyed the challenging ascent out of Ingleton. Chris Cox completed his circumnavigation of the major fells above Clapham and Allan treated the C party to an exciting detour around the Norber Erratics, one of the finest fields of glacial boulders in Britain. Deposited by the last Ice Age, they consist of great perched blocks of dark grit which stand on the limestone platforms Most peculiar!
