Brecon Beacons

Date: 10-12th Feb

Visit the Brecon Beacons National Park, an area of mountains and high moorland in South Wales. Though not as tall as Snowdonia or the Lake District they have the advantage of being closer to Oxford, while still offering a great selection of varied and dramatic scenery! We will be staying at the Godre Pen Cottage, a hut owned by the Croydon Caving Club. For more information and pretty picture see the trip poster.

Lake District

Date: 4th – 6th November (end of 4th week)

The Lake District is the largest National Park in England, and contains its top 10 highest mountains, including Scafell Pike (978m), only a short distance from our accommodation. During the last ice age, glaciers carved out steep valleys which produced the famous landscape of mountains and lakes that exists today.
