Little Asby Scar & Potts Valley

It isn't the first time we've done this walk (or a Variation of it). This is a very quiet area, indeed we didn't meet anyone. Another baking hot day, which neither of us are that fond of! Hard to please some folk!! It's notoriously difficult to take pictures which look any good at all round about midday at this time of year....and everything is so green!

Having parked in the village of Little Asby we set off up onto Little Asby Scar. Much of the way is pathless although limestone country usually makes for easy going.
Well away from the road there is still a lot of limestone left...closer to the roads much of it has been taken to be used in gardens etc. :-(  

We dropped down into Potts Valley, home to a wonderful clear stream.

Down the valley we went, stopping for our lunch as we went.

Then it was up out of the valley and back to the car through recently "dropped" meadows...the sun was drying the grass quickly. I would guess it will be picked up tomorrow, and stored ready for winter.
Not that far today, but lots to see.
