Walk: Austwick, Town Head, Crummack Dale, Beggar's Stile, Thieves Moss, Long Scar, Clapdale Drive
Start Point: Clapham Roadside Grid Reference: SD 745 693 
Distance: 9 miles Ascent: 1,200 feet
Time: 4.5 hours
Weather: A bright start the overcast with a cold wind in exposed areas
Comments: A picuresque frost covered the fields but muddy at stiles and gates. Once on the fells the walk was quite dry underfoot with easy walking.

Beck Head where the cave system from Gaping Gill emerges

Walking through the Ingleborough Estate . . .

A waterfall descends from The Lake . . .

as we leave the Estate . . .

just in time to see a flock of sheep heading along the main street, followed by 'a man and a dog' on a quad bike
