Dear All

Though I can not commit 100% to this trip as I am awaiting an appointment for surgery, I have booked myself in to a Pub about 10 miles away in the village of Hayfield. This location sits on Kinder rd, which is the main route to Kinder Scout mountain, a wonderful location in itself.

This is a wonderful pub, nice ale, great food and O.K accommodation with a superb english breakfast, complete with home made local marmalade!!!. I know that the location would not be ideal for the group as it is away from the campsite, but it should be no problem for me to travel each day to be with the group. As I write there was three extra ensuite rooms available.

Of course, unfortunately it is all provisional for me, but I really do hope I can make it.

Best Wishes
