As we left Gargrave there was uncertainty by some as to where Weets Top actually was, but this changed once the summit was reached. Everyone then recognised it as a top they had all been to before; it was just that on this walk we had approached it from the south east via the Dales Highway.There were seven on this walk including a guest, Jim, who we were pleased to have in our company once again.

Some of the group disappear into the Wine Cave . . .
and look a lot happier . . .
as they emerge . . .
with smiles on their faces!
