Beautiful weather today, we couldn't believe it was the middle of February. Parking in Horton-in-Ribblesdale we walked up the Pennine Way past Sell Gill Hole enjoying the easy going on the short turf.

We peered into the depths of the potholes before climbing the last few metres to where the path levels out

We passed the "new" improved Three Peaks path freshly surfaced, with its attendant sign, all very impressive. Although the section over to Birkwith was a morass!
|New sign, new path!|
From Birkwith we followed the Ribble Way as it contours the hillside. The terrain hereabouts is terraced in a wonderful way, it makes for easy walking although the wind was blowing into our faces all the way back.

As we approache Sell Gill again we descended across the fields to New Houses farm and followed the minor road to Horton and the car. A great day, spring feels as if it is just round the corner. That should curse the job!!
