In the Shadow of Whernside

Just a short ramble today from Ribblehead, in sun and showers. The route a convenient circuit, as we walked under the magnificent viaduct we were treated to the wonderful sight of a steam loco crossing above us. On past the very smart new Chapel-la-Dale camping barn and following the tarmac lane to eventually cross the busy Ingleton-Hawes road. The wet limestone pavement under Park Fell was shining in the sunshine. The paths on the fell pastures here are very little used, and slightly confusing. Eventually we found our way into the old Ribblehead quarry which is now a National Nature Reserve. Nature has soon taken over, there is now a riot of wild flowers were once there was destruction. A few hundred yards and we were back at the car.
