Blessed with a stunning morning five of us set off from Sedbergh and enjoyed England at its best. From leafy river banks covered with blue bells and wild garlic we studied the imposing old railway viaducts of the now abandon Barbon line. Having swung south down the Rawthey and Lune valleys we now headed north with a splendiferous panorama of the Howgills opening up before us.
A well graded track soon followed which led up past Birkhaw onto Bram Rigg and The Calf where we were once again greeted with a super view.
Having packed the night before after a big tea, the Leaders butty box was now looking decidedly bare. Oh no!! So not quite declaring an emergency we scampered off down the hill where we soon found a great cafe thanks to Steve’s intel and enjoyed an unusual selection of very yummy cakes and a well earned pot of tea.
A great end to a very enjoyable day out!! Thanks to all for the good company.
The next walk is David’s on Saturday 15th June Drumaldrace (Wensleydale) which again is another lovely part of the world.
