Date: Tuesday 26 May 2015
Walked from: Ickornshaw, West Yorkshire
Walked to: Malham, North Yorkshire
Distance: 17 miles
Stayed: Lister Arms
Weather: Dry, fresh and often sunny. Perfect!
The word ‘glorious’ was invented for walks like the one we did today. Great walking weather (fresh but often sunny), incredible views, canal side wanders, riverside meanders, lambs, ducklings, flower-filled meadows, a lunchtime cafe, a sweet shop sent from heaven, such was its perfection of confection … and singing along to a You Tube clip of Kate Bush’s Wuthering Heights on the top of a moor (ok, it was ALMOST a perfect day!)…
Spectacular views from Pinhaw Beacon, great cheese and onion toastie at Abotts Harbour Cafe, the best sweet shop ever in Gargrave, more fab views from Eshton Moor and then a (predominantly) river side potter into Malham.
