Heading across the fields from Airton we pass Hanlith Hall . . .
and spot some Shetland ponies
Malham Cove comes into view
Two young lambs - but why is one in fancy dress?
Ray and John are keen to get to the cove . . .
and keep well ahead of the group . . .
all the way
I wonder if they fancied a bit of rock climbing . . .
rather them than me!
Heading up Watlowes - where are the 'Cowboys and Indians'?
Looking back down Watlowes
Approaching Gordale Beck we find another limestone gorge
This one leads past the higher waterfall . . .
to Gordale Scar
