A circular walk up to Pen y Ghent and on to Plover Hill, from Horton-in-Ribblesdale. September 2020.
Friday 18th September 2020
After four memorable days in the Yorkshire Dales, it was almost time to head home to North Somerset. I’d packed away my damp tent and all associated gear from inside. With my car boot fully loaded, I still had one more stop on my mind.

Tuesday 15th September 2020
This would be my second walk in the Yorkshire Dales. Although it would first involve a twenty-minute car journey away from Ingleton and in to… Lancashire! However, I was still within the boundary of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
