Scroll down to see photos of the walk
Setting off over the wooden bridge
The Pavilion across the River Wharfe . . .
which has lots of water today . . .
and looking back to the bridge
A lonely tree stands out in the frost . . .
on a beautiful start to the day
Closing in on gnarled branches
Studying an information board
The Group passes a frozen pond . . .
in a frosty valley . . .
as we continue towards Simon's Seat
A good solid bridge . . .
into the Valley of Desolation . . .
and looking back as we climb out
Through the Laund Pasture Plantation . . .
and up onto Barden fell
A grouse keeps an eye on us
A convenient spot for a coffee break
Looking rather misty now
Heading towards . . .
Simon's Seat, now in the mist . . .
with the trig point, 485 mtrs
John has made it, recognise the gloves!
Cleared a bit now
Gathering before . . .
leaving Simon's Seat
A taste of the view from the moor
Time for lunch
Local cockerel . . .
A moss covered wall
Good job we don't need the stepping stones
What a silly sheep
The Strid . . .
Phil enjoys a cup of tea at the end of a good day . . .
with Bill and Gina
