Boots and Beer Walking Festival 2011

Boots and Beer Walking Festival
9th - 11th September 2011
Wensleydale, Yorkshire Dales

Boots and Beer Walking Festival last weekend, with the Yorkshire Dales at their blustery best!

400 walkers, 15 superb walks and 20 great pubs.

13 out of the 15 walks were self-guided with checkpoints (and pubs) along the way (all of the routes were researched by me). I took a guided walk on a 'moorland navigation day' on Friday up onto Drumaldrace and then I took another group over Great Shunner Fell to the Farmers Arms at Muker on Saturday. Roll on next year!
