The road took us back to the path and from there it was a slow uphill slog through very boggy vegetation.
Mileage check. Every so often we would stop and try and guess how far we had walked. Tim's gadget seemed as accurate as any. I think all of us usually underestimated the mileage, as it made us feel much better hearing the actual distance we had walked.
Don't recall seeing a wellington boot stand before. Clever idea.
Soon we are back following a river but this time it is the River Dee.
We arrived in the village and walked along its narrow, cobbled main street with its white washed cottages. A beautiful Dales village with the cherry blossom in full bloom outside the 12th C church.
The old Bank signage has been kept on this house.
We arrived mid afternoon so had time to meander through the village in the hope of finding a cafe for a welcome cup of tea and toasted tea cake. I am delighted to say that was no problem in this village.
Outside the George and Dragon pub where we were staying was a memorial fountain to Adam Sedgwick (1785-1874). He was a professor at Cambridge University and was a pioneer of modern geology. Born in Dent he was a friend of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert and an opponent of Charles Darwin.
