On Sunday a group of us look to be heading to Great Gable to take part in the 2 minutes’ silence at 11.00 am.
We have done this on numerous occasions over previous years, so many Members will know that Great Gable was purchased by the FRCC after the First War, and given to the National Trust as a memorial. It seems likely that the hill will be busier than usual this year, because people will mark the 100th anniversary of the Armistice.
However the crowd usually disperses across the landscape after 11.15. So depending on the weather there are various options to continue the day.
Several of us are defaulting to Gable because the Weather Clerk is not smiling on the highlands. So if anybody else wants to come along, please say.
Getting to Gable for 10.45 am will involve either a bracingly early start from York, or an overnight in the Lakes (last year was the night hike up Blencathra plus camper vans). Arrangements TBA
