Darren Valley – Sunday 10th June 2012

This is a lovely, circular 8.5 walk in the beautiful Darran Valley, crossing wild commons and passing places of historical intrigue and gaining massive views.  This is the write up on one web site, but in fact if its as it was yesterday when Bill and I did it, and it did nothing but rain all day, the views were a bit disappointing, but nevertheless, I’m sure on a clear day, the views will be spectactular.

We will be crossing streams, and climbing two hillsides to open moorland, these aren’t overly strenuous, it is a varied walk, walking on open moorland, but also through some trees.  If, like me, you are fascinated and admire the skill and workmanship of the builders of the dry stone walls, you will not be disappointed, there are quite a few of these. 

We will be walking on distinct paths, so its quite good underfoot. 

There is plenty of free car parking, and the building is open on weekends between 10.00 – 4.00 p.m. so probably a toilet stop before we start our walk.
