Skiddaw House Reading & Walking Retreat 2019

Over the Easter break, a group of students and staff headed off on the annual walking and reading retreat. 

The group went off-grid as they walked the Cumbrian Mountains to reach the highest and most remote hostel in the UK, Skiddaw House.

Skiddaw House is completely inaccessible by road, so the group carried all their belongings and food supplies on the three mile walk.

The retreat provided great practice for the upcoming expedition to the Spanish Pyrenees in July, where the group will take on the GR11 European walking route.
