Join the region walking group at Richmond circular
Date and Time: Saturday 12th February 2021, meet 9.45 for 10.00am start.
Meeting Point: Car Park at NZ 171020. Nearest toilets Richmond. From the east side of Richmond, follow the signs for the trading estate up the hill (Gallowgate) Do not turn left into the trading estate, continue up the hill past some newish looking large houses on the right-hand side. Just after these, there is a 40mph speed sign closely followed by a National Speed limit sign. The car park is on the left just before the 40 sign – at the east end of the old race course.
Approximate length of walk/difficulty level: 12.6km, 315m ascent (whilst we do not climb a hill, most of the height is gained going up one valley which is quite steep in places. The track has been recently tarmacked but there is the option of walking on grass at the side of the road)
Level 2. Map 304 – Darlington and Richmond
Details: From the Car Park we follow the route of the old race track west then head SE to join the Coast to Coast track heading west towards Whitecliffe Wood. We head uphill at High Applegarth and then towards Willance’s Leap. At this point, we head north through the wood and then south east through Coalsgarth returning to the racecourse and back to our starting point.
