Crummackdale & Thieves Moss

Todays walk started in Austwick in the Dales...the Lakes are out of bound for me until the school holiday madness subsides! From Austwick Bridge I walked up Wood Lane and on towards Wharfe. As usual here are few photos from the day....

Moughton Scar & Austwick Beck from Austwick Bridge

Slightly off route, but always worth a visit this is Washfold above Wharfe

Further up Crummackdale and the skyline between the Gateposts is where I was heading.

The cairn of Capple Bank on Moughton Scar.

Having sheltered from the edge of a passing shower having lunch I crossed over to Thieves Moss.
The above photo is of a recent "dig" by some potholers...there was the sound of a significant fall of water not far in!

It was very windy on the edge of the scar, in-fact the day had deteriorated whilst I'd been out.
Here we look down onto Thieves Moss, with Pen-y-Ghent prominent in the background.
I returned to Austwick by the bridleways and footpaths on the Western edge of Crummackdale.
Today had a bit of an Autumnal feel to it at times...colours should be improving....not quite as much "Green"!
