Im not adverse to leading a group, we need some more volunteers tho.
A date should be decided a bit later in the new year. Propose late January early February provisionally.

Pleased to see the wiki page mentions the Long Mynd Hike. Especially as my Dad was one of it's founders :D He grew up with the mountain literally at the bottom of his garden (he could hop over his back fence and be on it).

Putting me down on that there list right now...
