There's meant to be a storm hitting the UK on Sunday night which may engulf the country for 2 days.
So the plan was to get out before the bad weather.
a great walk in the Yorkshire Dales, a 10 mile (ish) circuit from
Clapham. Great to be out in the Dales again seeing the vast
(relatively!) bulk of Pen-y-Ghent and the sheets of limestone pavement -
We met an amazing couple in their 70's
who'd used a train and bus combination that baffled us to make a day
trip from Leeds and do a big walk - impressive. Also happened upon a
family (with 2 children) out foraging for magic mushrooms!
only bit that got busy was when we strayed onto the 3 peaks route - the
path resembled a wide motorway and discarded plastic bottles littered
the route. A few teams strode (?galloped) past us to ensure they got
back to Horton in under 12 hours to get their '3 peaks card' stamped.
Just as we returned to the car the rain started... perfect timing
