Leaving Plain Quarry car park we head off into the woods . . .
where we find some very muddy paths
After navigating stiles . . .
we make our way through . . .
moss covered limestone
Once out of the woods its time for a coffee stop . . .
but all too soon its time to be on our way . . .
through varying limestone scenery . . .
before meeting up with a local resident . . .
Making our way ever upwards . . .
Kath & Marie provide perspective for these interesting rock formations
Time for a pause . . .
to admire the scenery and name the various landmarks such as Arnside Knott
Our lunch spot overlooks Farleton Knott . . .
and provides lots of rocks . . .
to sit amongst . . .
whilst we enjoy our refreshments . . .
before continuing on our route . . .
past even more interesting rock formations . . .
but I don't think Norman will get much sleep here!
Ascending Hutton Roof Crags Ingleborough comes into view . . .
resplendent in its new white livery
The group gathers by the trig point before our final stretch back to the cars
