An “amazing and utterly exhausting” walk.

“I am proud of myself and my friend as we encouraged and supported each other all the way. I am also proud of all those who did the trail. Everyone was happy and friendly.”

Feel Good Factor’s intrepid walkers took on Ingleton Waterfalls Walk in July and won! The coach trip to Ingleton Waterfall Trail was to do a four and a half mile walk which boasts some of the most spectacular waterfalls and woodland scenery, organised by our Community Engagement Worker & Health & Wellbeing Coach Chapeltown PCN, Beverly Gilbert.

“Thank you so very much, Beverley, for arranging this amazing walk. And of course also for making the impossible possible, for your calm support, quiet encouragement, and the neverending optimism!”

One of our walkers quoted the book Dune to express her feelings of the walk…

“It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.
It is by the juice of Sapho* that thoughts acquire speed,
the lips acquire stains, the stains become a warning.
It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.”

They write in their Useful Visitor Information under Terrain and Accessibility: “This is a strenuous walk with a large number of steps along the full route, the trail follows a well defined footpath and is unsuitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs. Sections of the path are uneven and can be slippery at times.” Just a slight understatement! There are about 1500 steps, at least half the path in-between steps is largely rocky terrain with rocks and boulders either sticking out of the path, needing to be crossed, or sticking into the path and needed carefully climbing around them.

However, in spite of all these challenges today was a beautiful day, utterly exhausting, but I would not have missed it for the world.”

The scenery was beautiful and been in such vast green space was lovely change. People who live in inner city are now been encouraged to visit such places which is great. Thank you to the Feel Good Factor workers for choosing the place and organising the trip. Looking forward to more like this.”

Congratulations to all our walkers, you were amazing.
