Kibworth Rambling Group’s autumn holiday took place in early October. It was centred on the town of Whitby where three consecutive days of walking took place. Both short walks, of approximately six miles, and longer walks of nearer nine miles took place each day. The group stayed in the HF centre, Larpool Hall and walked both on the North Yorkshire Moors and along the coastal paths. As you might imagine these walks proved to be both challenging and strenuous. The weather was generally good and, of course, the countryside beautiful. All twenty-five participants thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
44 people enjoyed a stay at Weymouth. We had three days of walking which included the stunning South Coast Path taking in Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, then the White Horse and the coastal path another day and the third walk was inland around Maiden Castle near Dorchester and Hardy Monument. On our day off from walking some stayed in Weymouth to explore and the coach took the rest of the party to Lyme Regis where the weather excelled itself and was enjoyed by everyone who went. The hotel was not up to the usual Kibworth Walking Club standard but the committee are working on getting it right for Spring 2024.
The stunning photos indicate that the group had ample compensation in good walks, good scenery and good company to make up for the accommodation.
