A Wander round Lower Crummackdale

An absolutely beautiful Winter day, the sun shone almost all day. Another favourite area, I never tire of this truly rural part of the Yorkshire Dales....either on foot or on the bike.

Having parked in Austwick we walked up Crummack Lane, once the steep bit is done theres a great view of Robin Procters Scar and the Norber Boulders. 

Over to the East is Moughton Scar with the  hamlet of Wharfe nestling below.

Lots of Snowdrops in the verges as we walked up the lane.

Then it was down to Wharfe, stopping beside Washfold dub for our lunch...soaking up some "rays"!

Wharfe Lane twists and turns as it contours below Moughton Scar before dropping down to Wharfe.

Looking back to Wharfe and Moughton Scar as we crossed to Wood End.

Wood Lane took us under Oxenber and onto the Pennine Bridleway.

Which led us back over Austwick Bridge and to the car in Austwick.
