Dressing for the Conditions!!

winter clothing

The forecast suggests that tomorrow whilst better than today, will be bitterly cold with temperatures dropping below 0 as we climb.There is the chance also of wintery showers and blustery conditions. All walkers therefore must be properly kitted out with deep tread walking boots, (trail shoes are not appropriate), layers of warm clothing, a waterproof/windproof jacket, gloves and hat, and in addition carry an extra dry fleece, gloves and hat in your rucksack. Waterproof bottoms, gaiters and poles would also be recommended.

If you are brave enough to face the elements and would like to know more about the history of the area we will be walking in and more particularly that of the “Long Woman”,  check out her story, at the link below.
