Other Notes: 

Opens Wednesdy 23rd December, closes end of January 2020. Usual format – go to the start checkpoint (see below) where you’ll find a stake with the next grid reference. Carry on until you get to the beer, chocolate and hand sanitiser. No visitor book this year due to covid. Please email comments to jamie.rennie@btinternet.com or post on WCOC's facebook page (important to know who's using the trail and whether the beer and choc need stocking up).

SAFETY:
Leave plenty of daylight and carry a decent torch. Both courses go into the high Fells south of Honister so go equipped for a mountain journey.
WE DON’T KNOW YOU’RE OUT THERE - YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY

Maps:

This year’s Beer Trail uses features which appear on the specially prepared OS map (thanks to Pete Nelson) . Please download the map using the link below and print. It is advisable to also take a bigger map with you in case you need safe ways off the fell. The grid references will also work on a Harveys map.
