Start Time: 10:30am    Grid Ref: SK171837. For Stars Wars day, we'll meet in Hope and park on the road by the Primary School.
On the main road through Hope, turn by The Old Hall Hotel (opposite the Church), the school is a little further on, on the left.
These aren't the droids you're looking for.
We'll wander along the Hope valley (Tatooine) to Castleton (the Lars Homestead) and up over Hollins Cross (Tosche Station) and down into Edale (The Cantina). Rising by Oller Brook to The Nab (Death Star), we pass Ringing Roger, Madwoman Stones, go on to Crookstone Hill, down to Edale End (Great Temple) and back to Hope (Ben's Kenobi's Hut).

Points to Remember:
1. Please call the walk leader before the walk in case any details have changed.
2. Make sure that you are suitably dressed for the weather. Remember that some walks are on exposed high land and the weather can be cold and wet. Denim jeans are not suitable for high-level walks.
3. Dogs are welcome but only with the prior agreement of the walk leader
4. If the walk leader decides to shorten the walk then that decision is final and is not open to negotiation. The leader will only do this when there is a good reason for doing so.
5. Even if a walk does not state packed lunch, it is always advisable to bring something to eat and drink.
6. If transport is shared, please provide the driver with a share of the fuel costs.
7. Non RA members are welcome to join us for 3 walks before being asked to join the RA. There are no exceptions to this.
8. Regrettably, due to the nature of the Sunday programme, we are unable to accept children on our these walks.
