A wet start as Ian leads off . . .

 

through Grassington . . .

 

but the sun comes out as we enter the fields north of Grassington

 

On the way to Hebden we see the old field system on the side of the fells

 

Coffee stop . . .

 

near the old mill weir and modern fish farm.

 

And the other end

 

A docile bull, fortunately, at Ranelands Farm

 

We climb SE away from Hebden, with the River Wharfe below us

 

and the lambs have arrived in Wharfedale

 

Dropping down to . . .

 

Burnsall . . .

 

and the River Wharfe . . .

 

for lunch.

 

Post-prandial departure . . .

 

through Burnsall . . .

 

and across the fields,

 

but don't mind us, we have our own pond,

 

to Thorpe.
