The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge Walk - The Antique Clock Card Machine STOP PRESS: IMPORTANT: The Yorkshire Three Peaks route was changed during the winter of 2012 after a number of challengers ended up waist deep in boggy ground. Instead of crossing Todber Moss, Black Dubb Moss and Red Moss, it now goes south of Hull Pot to cross Whitber Hill, Sell Gill Beck, Sell Gill Hill, Jackdaw Hole and Penyghent Churn to rejoin the original route on High Pasture. Our definitive route guide has been amended to reflect this change - so don't risk attempting this walk without all the latest route information.


The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge Walk - The Antique Clock Card Machine STOP PRESS: GPS Waypoint Data in both GPX (.gpx) and Text (.txt) format now available for The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge Walk.


The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge Walk - The Antique Clock Card Machine STOP PRESS: Our route guide now includes section timings (which take account of the fact that going up hill is slower than going down) so you will know whether or not you are on schedule to complete the walk within the required 12 hours. NB These timings have been adjusted to account for the new, slightly longer, version of the route established at the end of 2012.


The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge Walk - The Antique Clock Card Machine STOP PRESS: We have been advised that the safety service run by the Pen-y-ghent Cafe has been temporarily suspended. The Clock Card service however is still available.

The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge Walk - The Antique Clock Card Machine The Pen-y-ghent Cafe Antique Clock

The Pen-y-ghent Cafe, at the start and finish of The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge Walk in Horton in Ribblesdale has an antique clock card machine that will record your start and finish times for the walk.

All you need to do to use the service is obtain a (free) clock card from the cafe and write on it your name, home address, telephone number, vehicle registration and where the vehicle is parked. You then stamp the card in the clock machine and hand it back to the cafe.

When you have completed The Yorkshire Three Peaks Walk, inform the cafe that you have returned and their staff will stamp your card and send it to you by post. If you have completed the walk within 12 hours you will be invited to join the Three Peaks of Yorkshire Club and purchase a Three Peaks badge and tie (not sure there is much for women in this!).

The Cafe is open between 9.00am and 6.00pm each weekday except Tuesday and 8.00am and 6.00pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

The clock card service normally operates every day except Tuesdays and Fridays - but is currently unavailable (see above)

Walkers leaving before the cafe opens can post their details through the door and the staff will create and stamp a card for you providing you include

The latest time of departure is 9.30am.

Although the cafe closes at 6pm, staff are on hand until every walker is accounted for, and food and drink is available for purchase if required.

It is the responsibility of each walker to clock themselves back.

If you fail to complete The Yorkshire Three Peaks Walk for what ever reason - please make sure you inform the cafe that you are no longer on the hills.

The telephone number can be obtained from the Cafe at the start of the walk.
