Weekends Away 2019 - Peak District/Heart of England/Brecon Beacons

IF the trains are running as they should (i.e. no bus replacements or long diversions), THEN I'd post Long Weekends as follows:

[May Bank Holiday Weekend] Peak District --- Friday 3rd May SWC 267 Sheffield Circular, Saturday 4th May SWC 322 Grindleford Circular via Chatsworth House, Sunday 5th May SWC 319 Hathersage Circular via Stanage Edge, Higger Tor and Padley Gorge, Monday 6th May SWC 303 Edale Circular via Kinder Scout and Mam Tor or SWC 315 Hathersage Circular via Bretton Clough and Eyam or any other of the 'old' walks. I would need co-operation from other walk posters to swap dates. Note: currently the Hope Valley Line is on strike every Saturday w/o a bus replacement service (the cause: the threat of driver-only-operation, as it was/is on Southern), so the schedule may be altered if that doesn't change.

[19-21/07 or 4 weeks later] Heart of England --- Assume Friday 19 July SWC 323a Evesham to Pershore (start from Sedgeberrow), Saturday 20 July SWC 324 The Malvern Hills (Great Malvern Circular), Sunday 21 July SWC 324a The Malvern Hills (Colwall to Great Malvern). All three days are tough (albeit with shortcut options), but Saturday and Sunday can also be made even tougher with an extension each (seeing that we start early after staying over...).

[13-16/09] The Brecon Beacons (Abergavenny or Crickhowell) --- Assume Friday 13 September to Monday 16 September: New Walks not yet finalised [Pandy to Llanvihangel Crucorney via Llanthony Priory and Cwmyoy, Abergavenny Circular via Y Fal/Sugarloaf], plus others starting from Llangynidr, Llangattock/Crickhowell or the 'old' Bwlch Circular. Why in September? A: Heather in Bloom on the Moors; B: walks won't be ready in time for May anyway...
