Reeth is a village 11 miles (18 km) west of Richmond in the Richmondshire district of North Yorkshire, England, in the civil parish of Reeth, Fremington and Healaugh. Historically part of the North Riding of Yorkshire, it is the principal settlement of upper Swaledale.

The origin of the name Reeth is unclear. It is possibly derived from the Germanic for ‘place by the stream’, although this claim can neither be confirmed nor refuted. Reeth could also have been derived from the Cumbric rith (cf. ryd in Modern Welsh, rys in Cornish ), meaning ‘Ford’. Either would make sense as Reeth is located near two shallow rivers.

Weekend away in Reeth 1st – 3rd July


Hi, for circulation a quick update on the club weekend away.

This years event is a scaled down version to previous ones, as far as I’m aware there are 5 staying at the Orchard caravan park and two at Grinton Youth Hostel, no information on anybody staying in B&B’s.

No barbecue on Friday evening, but a get together at a pub in Reeth. Saturday is walk day after which a meal has been arranged for 7pm at the Bridge inn Grinton for 12 people under the club name.

Important – Pre-ordering of food is preferable from the attached menu. Please send menu choices to eddyadam@uwclub.net

For those feeling up for it a Sunday morning walk can be arranged.

Any further questions or late bookings please let me know.
