A late start saw us parked at Greenholme, West of J38 on the M6. This is a very quiet area, lots of derelict farms, which is sad. There are however lots of footpaths and bridleways, so a good variety of routes can be planned.

     We were greeted by a heavy shower as we arrived, wisely this was sat out in the car, and arrived back just after the first thunderclap and another heavy shower. Perfect timing!
The view into Bretherdale from the metalled road under Northside

The bridleway which runs above the valley, our return route would be along the minor road beside the beck

Wonderful old single slab bridge (visited by the Health & Safety Police?) near the derelict farmstead of Bretherdale Head
