Sedbergh

Monday 2 September. Karen joined me today when we went to Sedbergh for an 8¾ mile walk with 1,600ft of ascent. Our plan was to ascend to Arant Haw in the Howgills and then to follow the Dales Way back to Sedbergh. However, there was low cloud and mist on the hill tops so we cut our climb by 500ft and made our way to the trig point on Winder (1,537ft). From here we descended 1,100ft to pick up the Dales Way at Lune Viaduct. By now we had moved out of the cloud and into the sunshine in the valley bottom. Much of the remainder of the walk followed the course of the Rivers Lune & Rawthey back to town where we walked through the extensive sports fields of Sedbergh School. The poor visibility in the early part of the walk meant that I took just a couple of pictures today at Lune Viaduct.
