|We started the walk from the car park just a little south of the Lion Inn. Following the old railway heading North.|
|We have no idea why this little pool of water exists. Something to do with the railway line I'm sure. It was crystal clear|
|Approaching Rosedale Head. As Summer gets ready to handover to Autumn, the colours are wonderful.|
|Approaching Reeking Gill . What a fantastic name|
|Looking back from Sturdy Bank ( She'll be coming round the mountain when she comes..........)|
|Calcining kilns set one. Apparently these didn't work as well as they should, and a different design was tried.|
|Calcining kilns set two, a few hundred yards a way from the first. English Heritage has taken over both sets of ruins.|
|Looking back at the remants of an industrial age.|
That part of the walk was a little bit of an adventure to be honest. The bracken had grown high, and neither we, nor the two people walking in front of us, or the three people walking towards us, could work out where the path was.
|Can you see the path...........? No.........? Neither could we, but we followed one through that lot anyway.|
|Looking back on a beautiful dale at the end of a beautiful day.|
So a lovely end to a lovely afternoon. 7 ½ miles in record time. The easy walking meant our normally walking speed increased by nearly a third. So that's the difference the rail makes.
