|Weather:||Sunny and mild|
|Comments:||Extending a previous walk I also reversed the route done previously so that I would head up Conistone Dib rather than down it. I tried a suggested detour along Old Moor Lane to the dam but found that this extra sec tion wasn't worth following unless the plan was to visit the smelt mill workings. Heading down Hebden Beck I found that it wasn't as picturesque as walking up it - just need to keep looking back! The Dales Way was an easy track to follow and the sun enhanced Linton Falls.|

Heading up Conistone Dib . . .
this section is reminiscent of walking out of the Grand Canyon

From the dam evidence of the smelt mill can be seen . . .
