All the Calder Valley, including Hebden Bridge was devastated by the floods over the Christmas and New Year period. It was encouraging to meet 10 members of the club in the square at Hebden Bridge after the big clean up. There was still evidence of the damage done to many shops and businesses. We decided to have a coffee at a local shop before setting off out of the valley.
After downpours the previous day it was heartening to gather in glorious sunshine, which lasted on and off all day.
In light of his recent heart surgery, Derek opted for an easy? contouring low level walk ( 7-8 miles!) via Cray to Yockernthwaite stone circle, then back via Hubberholme on the Dalesway to Buckden for an extended assessment of the refreshment facilities there.
