This event is, of course, subject to Government announcements as well as OutdoorLads' policy in relation to Covid-19.

After weeks and weeks of lock down, Stay in Less, and GET OUT MORE in the Moors! Socially distanced, of course! 

This summer evening walk will be a fantastic reintroduction to the outdoors. Nothing strenuous, and if we can still keep a good distance between us all.

This will be a circular walk from a North York Moors village, gently rising up onto a 'Rigg'. This is a Norse term frequently seen in the Moors, denoting a ridge - not necessarily precipitous, just allowing great views. We should be accompanied by the summer moorland birds, including lapwings, curlews and sky larks, with great views of one the Moors' dales, and some rocky outcrops for some great photos. We will cross the Rigg and return with excellent views on a second Moors dale, gently descending towards our start point. There is a pub towards the end - there might be an opportunity for a drink outside on the green IF rules allow.
