Muddy boots are always welcome at our meets. So pack those bags, boot up, tie those laces, check that map….let’s go!
The locations we camp in are walking, hiking and cycling heaven. They offer terrains suitable for various fitness levels, from flat riverside paths, to the odd scramble up and down some of England’s highest mountain peaks. Some of our members run mountain marathons. Some of them don’t. Some of them cycle 44 miles to buy some cheese. Some of them just like to eat it.
We try to offer group walks at most of our meets. These are led by volunteer members and group walks are dependent on their availability (and their mood about the weather and how good lunch might have been!). Our walks range from about 4 – 10 miles.
Our MAS Northern programme started off in late March: wet, grey and cold in the otherwise beautiful Wensleydale town of Hawes. Unlike the green fields that we frequent during the dryer months, Hawes Auction Mart offers us the security of hardstanding. No awning out but perfect for this time of year.
We love camping, walking and cycling in the most beautiful parts of Northern England, from the mountains and dales to moorlands and invigorating coastlines.
We’re the Northern Area of The Mountain Activity Section (MAS), the oldest special interest section of The Camping and Caravanning Club. First established in 1932, we’re a volunteer organisation run by members of the Club. We host 3 – 5 day meets with a special interest in walking and cycling.
We offer some of the most inexpensive and basic camping available and you’re guaranteed a friendly welcome. All members of the Camping and Caravanning Club are welcome to attend our meets (please bring your membership cards).
