Paul striding out to catch up with Jim.
I am often to be found at the back taking photos.
It was very picturesque
Lambs everywhere but their Mums weren't too far behind.
These bridges seem to be getting narrower.
And a solo
At the other side of the river is East House farm surrounded by hundreds of daffodils. Just beyond the farm we joined the road for about a mile.
Before entering the village of Oughtershaw we came across this heart shaped well. The guidebook told us that it was erected in celebration of Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee in 1887.
Mole catchers hang dead moles on fences as evidence of their work.
The old school and chapel dated 1856 built by John Ruskin for another member of the Woodd family, Charles Woodd who dedicated it to the memory of his wife Lydia Wilson Woodd who died aged 32.
Another old postbox. This one is from the reign of George V (1910-1936), grandfather of the present Queen.
Another memorial to Queen Victoria in celebration of her Diamond Jubilee in 1897.
Not far out of the village there is another postbox. This one is the oldest as it dates back to Victoria's reign so was put up sometime between 1837 and 1901. Very unusual to see three postboxes from different eras in such close proximity to one another.
It was heavy going at times climbing to the highest point of the Dales Way.
Decided to have our lunch on the least exposed side of a wall knowing that once we walked onto the fell it would be much colder.
Just about made it back from precariously placing my camera on top of a cairn and setting the timer!
An old milestone. From here we just had one and a half miles to go which was made bearable as we were able to see one of the main features of the Dales Way, the Ribblehead Viaduct
Finally we reached the Station Inn, our resting place for the night.
