It has been raining until mid-afternoon so I decided to go underground at White Scar Caves. At ??8.50, I was a little underwhelmed by the experience and photography was barred in the main cavern.
It was a warm humid day and the mist clung to the hilltops. So, it was a low level 8.5 mile walk with just 720ft of ascent starting from my caravan. I set off for nearby Burton in Lonsdale & then on to the outskirts of Ingleton. From here it was on to High Bentham where I stopped for lunch. It was then just a couple of miles back to base.Sent from Samsung Galaxy Note
The weather wasn’t quite so good today with low cloud/mist although the sun did shine after lunch. My walk was a 6 mile circuit of remote Kingdale with 860ft of ascent. This valley which eventually joins Deepdale & Dentdale can only be accessed by a single track gated (5 of them) road.
After a rest day yesterday visiting family in Harrogate, today’s walk was a leisurely 6 mile stroll with 1,570ft of ascent to the summit of Pen-y-ghent (2,277ft).
Today it was the second & highest of Yorkshire’s Three Peaks (2,415ft).
Today’s walk was a 7 mile route with 1,650ft of ascent to the top of Ingleborough @ 2,373ft. Setting off at 08:30, I was at the top just before 10:00 & had the place to myself.
After yesterdays exersions, I opted for a slightly easier 7.75 mile walk with only 1,200ft of ascent. Starting from Stainforth, I was soon climbing Smearsett & Pot Scars before descending to Feizor where I found A nice cafe for a welcome tea break on a too warm day.
