Start Point: Horton Bridge Grid Reference: SD 810 720
Distance: 14 miles Ascent: 2,600 feet
Time: 6.5 hours
Weather: Sunny spells
Comments: A cool start becoming mild. A pleasant walk repeated from 3 years ago though much of the path near Pen-y-Ghent Beck is rather rough.

Ready to set off . . .

and make our way across Brackenbottom . . .

towards Pen-y-Ghent

Robb is hoping for a coffee break but . . .

Ray has his eyes set on a spot on Plover Hill . . .

where it is time to continue our walk

Making our way towards Foxup on a lovely green path

Lunch is taken in a dry gully where Robb and John explore some caves to the right

Pen-y-Ghent comes back into view . . .

and makes the perfect backdrop for a group photo

Might be quite old but looks very smart
