We are the North East's fastest growing multi-activity outdoor pursuits club that meets in Framwellgate Moor on the outskirts of Durham City. Our members are from all parts of the county and beyond and we're always eager to welcome new members (who incidentally, must be over 18).
The club is affiliated to the BMC and is run by its members for its members. Within our ranks we have walkers, climbers, skiers and mountain-bikers representing every level of competence from highly experienced to complete beginner.
We aim to provide a friendly, supportive environment where experienced club members can pass on their skills or can recommend appropriate training.
Activities often take place over the course of a weekend (particularly bank holidays), typically camping in the summer but using cottages, youth hostels, camping barns or walking huts in the winter. Popular venues include the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, North Yorkshire Moors, Northumberland and Scotland.
If you love the outdoors and want to make lots of new friends who have similar interests, come along and meet us. However, if you find the prospect of turning up knowing no-one daunting, then why not contact us first? Click here to go to our contact page.
Masham Weekend for All Abilities
We started the weekend with Pimms and lemonade underneath the club's gazebo. Then a BBQ with home made burgers and Black Sheep Ale.
The rain didn't put us off and we headed to Brimham Rocks on Saturday for some bouldering, nature trails and some foraging for wild fruits.
Climbing, Mountain Biking, Walks and Scrambling, Day Activities...
Our members are active walkers, climbers, skiers and mountain-bikers, unfortunately they're so active that they're too busy to write anything authoritative for this page - so just look on it as a work in progress OK? We'll get there eventually - honest! Meanwhile have a look at what we've been up to in the past...
