The Yorkshire Three Peaks

The Yorkshire Three Peaks comprise of Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-Ghent and is 24.5 miles in length. The owner of Home Instead in Rochdale, David Bradshaw, had wanted to complete the walk for a number of years and a friend from Rochdale Rotary Club, Bob Chadwick, completed the circular walk in 9.5hrs and so David’s goal was to equal or beat Bob’s time. “I set off from home in Hebden Bridge at 04.30 and arrived at Ribblehead for the start of my walk just before 06.00. I reached the summit of Whernside in 80 minutes at 07.20 and set off for the next Peak, Ingleborough. I met two young ladies who were starting from Chapel-le-Dale on their 3 Peaks walk and we passed each other several times along the walk. The ladies took my picture on the summit of Ingleborough at 09.30 and I was convinced that I was going to achieve my goal and beat Bob’s time of 9.5hrs. My final peak was Pen-y-Ghent and, like Ingleborough, is steep on the approach to the summit. On the flat and downhill I was walking at a fast pace but uphill I was now finding it to be a real challenge and I met two male walkers one of whom had started a little after me at 06.00 from Ribblehead and had now caught up with me.. I arrived at the summit of Pe-y-Ghent at 13.10 thinking I would be pleased to finish the walk in 12hrs never mind Bob’s 9.5hrs and I still had a 7 mile walk back to the car. I was exhausted and pleased to have completed the walk in 10hrs but congratulations to Bob. I walked the Yorkshire Three Peaks on my own but met people who suffered with me on the way. I intended to do the annual Alzheimer’s Association Three Peaks Walk but missed the closing date for the 2019 event. However, I am sure a donation will not be turned down. Well done Bob.”
