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
