|Start Point:||Langcliffe||Grid Reference:||SD 823 651|
|Distance:||13.5 miles||Ascent:||2,450 feet|
|Weather:||Sunny spells with a cool breeze|
|Comments:||The route taken across to Streets, through the woods and just below Black Hill, saw us walking through long grass wet with early morning dew followed by numerous boggy sections. It was a relief to walk along the road for a time before heading along the Pennine Way to Watlowes. Instead of descending into the limestone gorge we walked a parallel route through the historic field system and enjoyed lunch overlooking Malham Cove and the limestone pavement. Our return route over Kirkby Fell brought us to Attermire Cove where we changed the planned route to head just south of Warrendale Knotts. This took us on a very pleasant green path, descending to join the footpath back into Langcliffe.|
On my lonesome . . .
but my friends aren't far away
Looking down into Watlowes, a commonly taken route,
but our path lies across the fields to the right . . .
where we have a great view of the limestone pavement . . .
where lots of people . . .
enjoy exploring . . .
the features of the clints and grykes
The face of the cove . . .
provides opportunities for rock climbing
Belted Galloways . . .
and their offspring
Looks like a comfortable spot . . .
to take in the view
Warrendale Knotts . . .
and Attermire Scar . . .
where there seems to be a stone circle!
Tha change to our route takes us below Warrendale Knotts . . .
with its imposing buttress
Arriving back in Langcliffe the source of all the 'baaaaing' . . .
