Wanney's Yomp 26th Dec 2012

Postby RobSay » Sat Dec 08, 2012 8:07 pm

Hello folks - for many years now pipers and other musicians have been gathering on the top of Great Wanney in Northumberland on the 26th December to play tunes and marvel at their own silliness. This year we will continue the tradition!

The plan is to meet on top around 10.30. It's not overly strenuous (but boots recommended) and takes about 30 minutes to walk up from either the Sweethope Lough side or the north road.

South Road: http://www.streetmap.co.uk/map.srf?X=39 ... &A=Y&Z=120)

After playing some tunes, we wend our way back down and head off to the local pub - which is currently the Gun Inn at Ridsdale. Liz & Michael are very friendly hosts have been very good to us over the last few years. We should be there around there at around 12.30 and there'll be music for as long as people choose to play.

All musicians are welcome, the piper's will pretty much all be in F - but some of us are adaptable (there are also two rooms)

I've been doing it for the best part of 20 years and there have been some memorable gatherings - both on top and afterwards in the pub. Please join us and continue the fun.

(I'm not sure if the Gun will be serving lunches - best contact them if you might want to order food)
