Just inside the access area at Hayshaw Fell, just off Long Lane (somewhere south of Bay Horse)



Angel's plan: Walk down from Lancaster to Galgate, and then follow the road which seems to lead straight there. See whether or not the location is accessible; it looks like a field on satellite, but it might actually be within the Clougha Access Area. I'm hoping to hit the site some time before 4; if anyone else shows up, we'll retire to the pub in Bay Horse at 4:10.


Expedition in progress; its 3pm now, and I suspect I'll be well late for the meetup. Met a friend on the way who's going by bike, though. So far, I had 3 stops for minor medical emergencies: Low blood sugar, nausea due to dehydration (necessitating a detour to grab more bottled water), and sudden diarrhea (maybe due to spicier-than-usual curry for lunch). I'm still heading there, but may be a bit late. -- Angel 11:08, 24 March 2012 (EDT)

Jonno made it to the point first; he was on the way back, and we met up again where the path meets the road at about 4:20. Then went back to the hash point, to collaborate on getting some photos of each other.

Good fun first hash for me: a leisurely hour's cycle to the end of the road proper, then a bridleway, then a dirt path, then open moorland - ramping difficulty all the way, in other words. Glad I made contact with Angel on the way down (at >30mph down the bridleway): allowed proof to be taken, and it justified a stop off at the very nice Fleece Inn in Bay Horse nr Dolphinholme. -- Jonno 22:56, 25 March 2012
