Slieve Donard from Bloody Bridge – Walk NI #motels #rotorua

Slieve Donard from Bloody Bridge

Route Description

From the southern end of the car park cross the main A2 road to reach a gate. Pass through and follow the path on the right hand side of the Bloody Bridge River.

Look out for the attractive stonework of the original Bloody Bridge. During the 1641 rebellion this was the scene of a massacre of prisoners on escort from Newry to Newcastle.

In common with most Mourne rivers, the Bloody Bridge River is a spate river : carrying little more than a trickle in dry weather, but swelling to a torrent during heavy rainfall. In addition, it occupies an outsize glaciated valley and its waters have eroded through a bank of glacial sand, boulders and gravel (called a moraine) to reach the sea. The exposed cliff-like face of the moraine is visible (left) upstream of the old bridge.

After 750m the path narrows and crosses a wooden footbridge at the confluence of the Bloody Bridge and Glen Fofanny Rivers before (in 50m) reaching the stile.

Beyond the stile the path picks its way upstream. After 400m look for an obvious slab of rock inclining towards a narrow section of river. Several conveniently placed boulders make this an easy crossing point. Continue upstream along the opposite bank.

After 80m the path climbs above the river s course, twisting back on itself (seawards) along a broad track giving views across the valley.

View north. From this point Slieve Donard is largely hidden by the bulk of Crossone whose lower slopes form a watershed dividing the Bloody Bridge and Glen Fofanny Rivers. The long shelf of Leganabruchan borders Glen Fofanny on its northern side with the edge of Donard Wood just visible against the backdrop of Dundrum Bay.

Continue for 30m before turning sharp right onto a narrower track which zig-zags uphill. PLEASE KEEP TO THE ZIG-ZAG SECTION OF PATH AND DO NOT TAKE SHORT-CUTS.

Above the zig-zag, the path follows an old quarry track which extends 1.4km into the upper valley before skirting (right) along the north side of the quarry.

From a vantage point above the quarry the line of a disused railway leading to Carr s Face on the slopes of Chimney Rock Mountain can be discerned. Large flat granite slabs were hewn from this area for use as ornamental stone or as foundation blocks in post-war construction works.

Beyond the quarry the path meets the Mourne Wall at 750m. From here Slieve Donard can be reached by following the Mourne Wall uphill for 1km to the tower on the mountain summit.

On a clear day the panorama from Slieve Donard is superb. In particular, note the continuation of the Brandy Pad further west and the scale of the quarry operation on the side of Chimney Rock Mountain now vividly revealed from Donard s viewpoint.

Please be aware – Although, there are numerous walking routes in the Mournes, the majority of these popular walks are not formally designated public rights of way. Most routes have developed over time due to traditional use. Below 600 feet (180m) most land is privately owned and is farmed or grazed. Many of the traditional access routes cross this land or pass along farm lanes and quarry tracks. Walkers are advised to respect that they may be walking on private land and are encouraged to make themselves aware of and adhere to the principles of ‘Leave No Trace’ – www.leavenotraceireland.org”

Please remember that much of the land you will cross is private property and access is only available through the goodwill of the landowners. Although some areas of the countryside have been traditionally used for recreation, the public have no general rights to access such land and are only walking with the tolerance of the landowner.

Getting to the Start

From Newcastle head south towards Kilkeel. Approx 1.86 miles (3kms) look out for a car park on the left hand side. This is Bloody Bridge car park and the starting point for this walk.

Accessibility Grade

Thursday 15th July 2010

An excellent walk although found it very tight in places especially on the feet.

started out from the carpark on the A2 Bloody bridge and headed up the right hand side of the Bloody Bridge River which is a well walked track for about 1km at which point we crossed the Glen Fofanny River, the wooden footbridge is no longer in place but the River can be safely crossed with the use of large boulders. Still staying on the right hand side of the BBR for another 350m we then crossed the fjord and made our way to a stile you have to cross at this fjord as there are no paths on the right hand side of the river after this crossing point. We then made our way upwards along the left hand side of the BBR on the old Quarry track this is where we found the walk more taxing as for the next 1.5km we were walking on large stones/boulders all the way to the Quarry. The views and scenery are outstanding both downwards towards the sea and upwards towards the summit of Slieve Donard.

From the Quarry the terrain is a mixture of boulders/grass and peat with some places being very soft underfoot at which you could easly sink above ankle depth so a good pair of waterproof boots would be advisable.

From the Quarry it would be another 500m to the Mourne wall at which point we stopped and took a well earned cup of tea and some ham sandwiches & after climbing an exhaustive 3.5km ham sandwiches would of been fit for a king.

We decided that we would return back down the same way we arrived as the weather was very temperamental so after our late lunch we started our descent and although we were only 550m above sea level it was high enough because as we set off the cloud dropped and within 150m of our descent the hail came down hard eventually turning to rain as we reached the Quarry we had covered approx 1.5km before we had sight of the sun again but from the fjord all the way down to Bloody Bridge it turned out to be pleasantly warm but it is on the descent that care should be taken because of the terrain you are crossing it could be so very easy to twist/break an ankle if you were forced to move faster due to weather conditions.

all in all i found this walk very exhillerating & enjoyable and would recommend to all walkers novice and veteran

Tub to Shower Conversions

Restore independence with Surface Specialists® safety tub conversion. Have your existing porcelain, steel, acrylic or fiberglass bathtub converted into a shower unit at approximately 80% less than the cost of remodeling. The tub to shower conversion process involves removing a section of the bathtub wall and then re-creating a lower bathtub wall height for easy access into and out of the bathtub.

Surface Specialists offers three types of bathtub to shower conversion procedures:

Blend-In Tub Cut Out

Walk Through Insert

Insert with Door

The blend in version of our handicap accessible tub cut procedure is the most natural looking tub to shower conversion option we offer. After the tub deck section is cut out and removed; the sides and bottom of the tub rail are rebuilt. reinforced and sprayed with a color matched coating to seamlessly blend into the existing bathtub.

Our walk through insert creates a handicap accessible tub to shower conversion in just a few hours. The tub deck section is cut out and removed then our plastic composite walk through insert cap is saddled over the existing tub to create quick and easy access tub access. The walk through insert is only available in white.

If you are looking for low barrier tub access, yet still want to be able to bathe in the tub, you don’t need to spend thousands of dollars on a walk-in tub. Our tub to shower conversion utilizing the insert with door option provides both a lower barrier for easy tub access and the ability to close the door and fill the tub with water.

All three tub to shower conversion procedures may not be available for your individual tub. Please consult your local Surface Specialists franchise who can provide you the best options for creating walk through access in your existing bathtub.


Slieve Donard (via the Glen River) – Northern Ireland s Highest Peak

#slieve donard hotel

#

Slieve Donard (via Glen River)

Route Description

Leave the car park in Donard Park heading towards the mountain and follow the Glen River uphill through old woodland of Scots Pine, Oak and Birch. At the first of 3 bridges, cross to the opposite bank.

Continue uphill through the forest, above a deep cut riverbed, for about 400m until another bridge is reached. The riverbank overhangs along this section so extra care is needed.

At this point cross back to the left hand side and resume journey uphill through the trees.

At the next bridge continue across the forest road and onto the rough track heading up towards the mountains, with thick forest on right (fenced), until a gate and stile is reached.

Cross the stile and follow the track above the river for about 2kms, heading towards the saddle between Donard and Commedagh.

At this point, the path crosses the river and continues uphill to the ‘Saddle’ where it meets the Mourne Wall.

At the Mourne Wall turn left and follow the wall steeply uphill towards the summit.

From the summit return by the same route, staying close to the wall until the Saddle is reached again. The cliffs on the north side of Donard known as Eagle Rocks should be avoided by walkers since the approaches are steep.

Return to Donard Park following the line of the Glen River.

Getting to the Start

Follow the one way system to the south end of Newcastle main street. Donard Car Park has ample parking.

Accessibility Grade

Managed to get to the top of Slieve Donard today. Still some snow against the wall.loads of couples climbing which was nice to see. It is also such a really quite place when the large groups have disappeared. Went from bloody bridge, first time so I do not know the Newcastle car park route. I decided against fell running it and it took me 7.20 11.10kms. my pace trebles backwards once I hit a hill. The view at the top was amazing, the sea was flat calm, Dublin, the sugar loaf, Scotland, isle of Man and Belfast and all the surrounding mountains visible. Although there are boggy areas, I do not know if boots which pull the legs off you are better than a decent pair of trainers, runners or gutties depending where you are from

My first ever proper hill/mountain walk, and my 47 year old knees are showing their age. The forest stage at the start is tougher than you would imagine, the next section is fine, the hike to the saddle isn’t easy and the final ascent along the wall required a good few short breaks. That being said, it was a wonderful experience filled with fabulous views and friendly hikers. I had hoped for a bit of cloud to move in as I reached the summit and the weather didn’t let me down. It went from clear skies to a downpour and 20m visibility in a heartbeat. Very glad to have decent waterproof clothing in the rucksack. All in all a great day. I will be back.

New look for popular Severn Hospice Midnight Walk

Severn Hospice has officially launched its Midnight Walks this week, revealing a new format for the popular sponsored walks.

This year’s walks will once again be open to ladies only but will feature a shorter 7km circular route for the first time instead of the usual 10km route.

The first walk is set to talk place at Telford College of Art and Technology on June 13 with a second walk planned for Shrewsbury Sports Village on July 11.

Following the cancelation of last year’s Midnight Walk in Telford due to a significant drop in participant numbers event organisers at the charity are hoping this year will be a great success.

Sarah Maythorne, fundraising events manager at Severn Hospice, said:

“We are delighted to announce that our Midnight Walks are back for another year. Following feedback from last year’s walk we have decided to revert back to a ladies-only format, having opened the event to men last year for our 25th anniversary, and we are shortening the route slightly so it will appeal to more women.

“Cancelling last year’s walk in Telford was a devastating blow for the hospice so we are hoping this year women from all over will once again step out in support of their local hospice.

“The walks may only be open to women over the age of 12 but men can still be involved by volunteering on the night. Without the support of over 200 hundred volunteers who give up their Saturday night to lend a hand we wouldn’t be able to hold such events.

“On the night of the Midnight Walks it is truly moving to see so many women come together to support their local hospice. Some ladies walk in memory of those who are no longer with us, some take part because they want to make a difference in their local community whilst others just want to enjoy a fun night out with friends.

“Every year thousands of women benefit from the specialist care provided by Severn Hospice either directly or because of the care given to someone they love. All of the care provided by Severn Hospice is free of charge; this is only possible thanks to the overwhelming generosity of the people of Shropshire and Mid Wales.”

Registration for the Midnight Walks is £10 and each lady taking part will be asked to raise as much sponsorship as they can.

For more information or to sign up for either Midnight Walk visit www.severnhospice.org.uk or call the Appeals team on 01952 221 351.

z_Midnight Walk will return in the Summer of 2016!

Review of 2015 event.

St Luke s Hospice Plymouth flagship fundraising event of the year, the Midnight Walk took place on Saturday 18 July with a sea of 1,881 pink ladies with flashing bunny ears heading out for the best girls night out.

The party started early, before the ladies even put a toe on the start line. A big outdoor stage, live music from local 80s Tribute Band, Ashes to Ashes, nail and hair makeovers was just some of the entertainment taking place, all compered by Heart Radio Drive Time presenter, Olivia.

A girls night out or a challenge, there are many reasons why the ladies come out in force to support St Luke s. What was quite evident for the majority of Women, was the opportunity to celebrate a life and to walk in memory of a treasured loved one. Powerful messages displayed on back of the Pink t-shirts reinforced the positive impact St Luke s has had on a local family in a time of need.

The event was hosted for the second year at The University of St Mark St John Sports Centre in Derriford and took the 3, 6 and 12 mile routes out onto Tavistock Road, City Centre bound. With residents staying up late to cheer on the ladies outside their homes, the 12 mile ladies arrived at their half way point at Plymouth University where they were greeted with welcome refreshments, entertainment and even a Pedicure for tired feet.

As the ladies cross the finish line there is a real sense of achievement and a special treat of a goodie bag packed with girlie treats and a Bucks Fizz Breakfast courtesy of Sainsbury s, Armada Way.

For one family, the Midnight Walk marks the anniversary of much loved Grandad, Ken Barrett as Jade Popplewell from Stoke explains: I am walking in memory of my Grandad, Ken. He had cancer and passed away when Midnight Walk was happening last year. It is a very emotional and special night for me, my mum and my other two aunties who are with me to remember such a special man and to say thank you to St Luke s . Jade added: There was such an amazing atmosphere here tonight, the party feeling before we set off and then out on the streets with people beeping their horns and cheering as they drove past us .

Lisa Hayward from St Budeaux, took part in her first Midnight Walk and went straight for the tough 12 Miles. Lisa said: The hill at Estover was the hardest part of the course, but because everyone else was doing it, it gave you the motivation to keep on walking. I am walking in memory of my Dad, Jeff Muckett. He was cared by the amazing St Luke s doctors and nurses and accessed the care at his home and in Derriford Hospital where was so well looked after by the St Luke s Hospital Team. I would like to say thank you to St Luke s for everything you do and being there not only for Dad, but for the whole family. It means a lot and I will never forget it . Lisa raised 150 on her walk.

Claire Watson from Plympton said: It has been really lovely and very uplifting. Everyone is looking out for each other, there have been some people on the course flagging a little bit and people have been picking their spirits up and helping them along which was so nice to see. It is a fantastic local charity and we try to do as much as we can. I feel like you a putting something back in, you never know when you are going to need St Luke s and it is reassuring to know that they are there .

Kelly Tippett, Southway said: I did the 12 miles and I didn t expect it to be as tough as it was, but it has been a really good experience. For me the challenge was when you hit Forder Valley, those hills were never ending. When we came up to the residential areas, there were people outside their homes cheering us along which was nice and encouraged us all to keep going .

Senior Events Fundraiser at St Luke s Hospice Plymouth, Emma Winter said: The atmosphere was buzzing on the night, it is so great to see the local community out in force to raise money and help create awareness for the care we provide.

On behalf of St Luke s I would like to thank everyone involved, the 130 volunteers who made it possible, the University of St Mark St John for being the perfect hosts and of course our sponsors, Princess Yachts International plc. See you next year for our 10th anniversary!

Midnight Walk is aiming to raise over 200,000 to enable St Luke s to provide free end of life care at home, in Derriford Hospital and at the hospice.
