There’s a road down the centre of the steepsided Deepdale that you follow to Low Applegarth Farm. Here I suffered my usual inability to find the path. Ringing water out of my sleeves, I “remembered” the route when I saw someone else go that way. The farmer has realised that I can't navigate his fields. He’s put up hulking great poles covered in yellow plastic tied with black masking tape stripes. You really can’t miss them. I like this part of the walk. The sun came out.
After Whitecliffe Wood, it’s past Lownethwaite Farm, down a track with loads of Himalayan Balsam in the verges, over Reeth road and the Swale and into Hudswell Woods.

Another lovely day.
