We'd like to extend an invitation to the Grey Panthers to try out walks on the Dalescape walking festival weekend 7th -9th June

We'd like feedback on what works and doesn't.

I can offer free walk tickets in return for your feedback as a group after the event.

All the details are on the website and there's a video and radio interview too, explaining more. We are also planning a challenge walk in September.

Hello Grey Panthers,
I have just found your web site by fortunate accident. Is there any way to display and print an ordnance survey map of the walks listed?

Many thanks for your comment in the Grey Panthers Guest Book. Sorry to be a bit late in replying, but I was away last week and have had a bit of catching up to do.
Unfortunately, the cost of including an OS map for each walk rules that one out.
I once enquired about copyright costs and found the price a bit too steep for what is a "free" website.
Possibly your best way forward is to download the QUO mapping system from []
Using QUO you can buy tiles, - sections of OS maps, for quite a reasonable price. You can start with just a few and then build up a collection.
Once you have done this, the Memory Map overlays which I include with every walk (free download!) can be used with the QUO software.
If you don't want to spend ANY money at all, Bing maps ( have the complete UK covered by OS maps (both 1 : 25000 and 1 : 50000). Then simply print out a relevant map and hand draw the route from the directions given on the Grey Panthers website.
The Grey Panthers website is a FREE one, and provides fantastic value for walkers. Plenty of ideas and routes to follow!

Visit to the National Railway Museum - what a cracking day out! Looking forward for the full set to be posted up on Flickr.

I'm delighted that you enjoy the website. If you can't actually do the walks, then you can see more of the scenery in this fantastic part of the world by following the link to my Flickr pages.

We like your changes to the site especially
the addition of future walks.
your last walk to Simon Seat. we did just a few weeks ago. taking in a beautiful waterfall at Posforth gill.
Gratefully following your walks

Many thanks for your comment in the Guest Book.
Actually, the page for future possible walks has been there for a while, but it was only relatively recently that I put the link on the Home Page, - because the other lads kept on either forgetting the link or mis-typing it! The purpose of the page is simply to give us some ideas in case we start to run out of them. Anyway, I'm glad if it helps you, - though it's not kept totally up to date.
When we did the Simon's Seat walk I tried to find the stone bench that you photographed. Never did see it!
One little tip about that walk, - we found out that there are several dates when Barden Moor and Barden Fell are CLOSED.
I wrote to the Yorkshire Dales people to ask them how we were meant to find out beforehand, and they couldn't answer that one.
So best not to go when the grouse are being slaughtered!

Just done the Wensley Bridge walk and it was really nice.However i would just like to point out that you head west not east at high lane,

Edward Nicholl Friday, 15 June 2012 11:44
Apologies for the error of "East" instead of "West". One of my deliberates mistakes...
Glad you enjoyed the walk, though. It was one of the most enjoyable for us so far this year.

I have just read Edward Nicholl's artical on Green Howard, Matthew Bendelow Insperational, what a man.
Thank You another Green Howard

Edward Nicholl Wednesday, 11 April 2012 19:45
Many thanks for your comment in the Grey Panthers Guest Book. Matthew Bendelow was a truly extraordinary man, and I'm hoping that my article in The Green Howard will help make more people aware of his achievements. He may not have been great in terms of history or politics, but not many people nowadays would have had his strength, tenacity, and courage.

The Grey Panthers have done a couple of walks recently in the Bowes area, and it really CAN be rugged country. Each winter, the main A66 road between Bowes and Brough is regularly having to be closed due to the weather. Walk the "Matthew Bendelow Memorial Walk" and one can appreciate his achievements even more.

Your website was recommended to me by a fellow walker. What a find! I am hoping to use some of the walks over the next few months.
