Scroll down to see photos of the walk
A misty start . . .
as we make our way across Sleddale Beck bridge . . .
and climb up the ridge
Frogspawn with developing tadpoles
It looks a little clearer as the group poses by the cairn
Another pause beside Gowthercrag Gill . . .
gives John time to check out the waterfall
Descending into Swindale . . .
near Truss Gap
Looking back up Swindale there is still mist on the higher fells
A sheltered spot for lunch between the showers
A lost lamb - no response from mother despite a lot of bleating
Wet Sleddale comes back into view . . .
as we descend to Sleddale Grange . . .
and check out the log patterns
Heading back over the bridge . . .
there is time to take a photo of the beck . . .
and Phil spots the 'icicles' below the arch . . .
and I get a last shot of the bridge
Looking over the reservoir the sun highlights the cement works
I don't remember crossing this bridge on the outward journey . . .
because we then took the newer bridge on the other side of the wall
