Lady Anne's Highway

Mallerstang Edge from the "Highway"

Hell Gill Force
A re-visit one week later to the eponymous "Highway". Last sunday I was cycling along it, but today we walked along it. The original line has been followed by the Pennine Bridleway, although as I mentioned last week re-surfaced for much of the ascent from near Outhgill. Lunch was taken at the sculpture "The Water Cut," I'll not bore anyone with a photograph again. We crossed the infant River Eden at Hell Gill, before descending to look at Hell Gill Force. This would be very impressive in spate but sadly today the beck was low. There's no pleasing some folk! our route back to the car was partly field paths and part on the road. The weather was superb again, remarkable really for late March.
