Sat 10th and Sun 11th December – The Summitt Good Christmas Event in Keswick!

A Weekend of Walking – The Summit Good Christmas Event in Keswick!

This year, the Summit Good Ramblers will be holding a weekend-long Christmas event, on 10th and Sunday 11th December 2016.

Based in Keswick, we’ll be holding two walks on Saturday, an easier low-level option (leisurely / moderate) in lovely Borrowdale and a harder high-level option (strenuous) going up and over the grand Grisedale Pike. These will be followed by an evening meal in The George, in Keswick. On Sunday there will be a moderately-paced walk up Latrigg starting from Moot Hall in the town centre. People are welcome to come along to any bit of the weekend they want – be it all of it, just the meal, or either/both of the day walks.

Keswick has a wide selection of accommodation available to suit all tastes and budgets so people who want to stay over and enjoy a glass of mulled wine can do so without needing to sort out transport home – see http://www.keswick.org/. Buses are also available to and from Keswick from Lancaster & Kendal it is the Stagecoach 555, from Carlisle the 73, and from Workington & Penrith they are the X4 & X5.

Walk Details:

Saturday – Option A (Moderate) – Borrowdale
Saturday – Option B (Strenuous) – Grisedale Pike
Sunday – Latrigg Fell

Christmas Meal


A table has been provisionally booked at 7pm at The George in Keswick on Saturday the 10th December. Places will be available on a first come first served basis.

For people who are unfamiliar with The George it is renowned for it’s pies, especially the Cow Pie. Half portions are available but the challenge stands to see who can finish the full portion! They have meals suitable for vegetarians, gluten free meals are also available on request.

So dig out the diary and see if you are free to be part of the festive do or all festive dos! Festive games will be played and christmas jumpers and santa hats/antlers are optional!

Please email summittgoodrambling@gmail.com if you wish to reserve a place.

We’ll be publishing details of the walks closer to the time, but save the date – it should be a cracker of a weekend!
