Need for good walking boots may be emphasised by accident
Bookmark and Share
The need for good walking boots in the current wintry weather may have been emphasised by a rescue incident in the Yorkshire Dales.

On Saturday (December 18th), a 71-year-old female suffered a slip while walking on a nature trail in Clapdale Woods, breaking her arm in the fall.

She was aided by members of the Cave Rescue team - who also carry out above-ground operations - which treated her at the scene and further at their depot before she was taken by ambulance to hospital.

The same team helped a fell-runner who had slipped and broken his ankle near Chapel-le-Dale six days earlier.

Such incidents may help to emphasise the need to have walking boots with good winter grips.

And one person who has recently advised of the need to wear good footwear when walking on a "slippery" path is National Trust ranger for Roseberry Topping in North Yorkshire Gareth Wilson.

Last week, he told the Daily Telegraph such precautions are needed when passing through Newton Wood on the way up the North Yorkshire hill.
