Scout Expedition

Scout Expedition

Five members of the Scout Troop completed their Expedition Hike over the weekend. The Scouts set off just after 10am on Saturday, towards their overnight camping stop at Tansley Wood Scout Centre. They arrived here mid afternoon having walked approximately 7 miles. It was quite wet and windy overnight, but the camp site was quite sheltered. They set off again on Sunday morning at 10am and after a very long day, arrived at Holymoorside at 5pm. The going was quite tough over the two days due to the terrain, the equipment they carried with them, and because some of the footpaths were difficult to find and very overgrown.

A huge thank you all the Scout leaders who supported the planning and execution of the Hike, and particularly to Ryan for meeting our Scouts at the checkpoints and keeping an eye on their progress over the two days.

The route they took (including minor detours) was 16.92 miles (27.23km) long.
