Moorland Walk Finishes Up in TV Set!

Posted by Daniel Paulo on

Saturday 12th October 2019. Our walks are a little bit unambitious at the moment, we are hopefully building up to bigger things.  A very good easy walk we do quite regularly is Conistone to Grassington which we walked again last Saturday (12th October). After much bad weather we finally had a nice day, though there were showers around.  Instead of starting the walk up Conistone Dib, a narrow dry limestone ravine, we quickly gained height on Scot Gate Lane, passing the distinctive antenna on Wassa Hill before joining the Dalesway.  Here the track is mostly green and very easy going...

Yarndale Wool Festival, Skipton, North Yorkshire.

Posted by Ann Cruickshanks on

Saturday 28th September 2019. I had a lovely experience and lots of pleasure at Yarndale Festival on Saturday. I enjoyed gazing over all the retailers' stalls packed full with delightful goodies.  I just had to take a photo of the huge collection of teddy bears that was a display in the entrance to the show.  I have never seen so many colourful Teds in one place.

Our walk on the Haworth Moors "Bronte Country" Part 2.

Posted by Ann Cruickshanks on

Sunday 8th September 2019. Our second walk on Haworth Moors, trudging through the heather from Top Withens to Crow Hill. We parked the car once again at Ponden Reservoir and followed the same route as the last walk, up the gentle slope to the sign post of Top Withens.  This path is one of the ways tourist can visit the well known Top Withens, supposedly associated as the farm house in Emily Brontes famous novel 'Wuthering Heights'.  So therefore underfoot is a very well made up track (most of it being flag stones) leading you all the way to the ruin.  ...
