1. Lee’s socks, well not Lee’s socks because they’re my socks, but socks that Lee knits are better than even I thought. Two or three pairs will get me through the worst of conditions. My boots were so bad at one stage I dunked them in a cow drinking trough just to get mud off them. 2. Jake and Marie’s map wallet, well not their map wallet because it’s mine, but a map wallet that they gave me has served me really well. It has survived several big walks and is still waterproof and still with me everywhere and every time I walk. It is actually waterproof. 3. I should write a guide book. Then there would be no phrases like ‘right at the top of the incline turn left’, ‘taking the right turn will lead ... read more
And a table with a view to boot.
Always an easy walk along the tow path.
Unusual architecture.

Mark had his lazy day so stayed at Station House watching TV and reading. The rest of us headed off to Malham Cove, driving over the narrow, windy roads on the high empty moors skirting the southern slopes of Scosthrop High Moor. At the Visitor Centre we were recommended a 5 mile walk to Malham Cove and Gordale Scar. The clouds had cleared and we had lovely clear skies for the rest of the walk. As a group of young, noisy, school children set off towards Gordale scar we decided to do the walk in reverse. Will was glad about this as he preferred going up the reported 663 steps rather than down them. (Although when we got there Dad only counted 370 steps!) The path took us along the pretty Malham Beck to where it ... read more

“Charming Yorkshire dale landscape” Its about 30mts walk from the main village. Better wear some rough hiking-boots as the limestones striven all over the base are slippery. The rock face looks majestic and imposing upon the people and it kind of makes people look like Lilliputians of the Gulliver's world ! As such, tiny people are hanging on the rope and swinging around pretending to be rock-climbing and having fun. There is a small water falls kind of hidden which I completely missed it. The water flows down to become a refreshing and relaxing ravine where school children were jumping from one mound to another. One of them jumped right into the water splashing everyone. The rock is surrounded by several hills with never-ending green meadows as far as the eyes can see, dotted with grazing ... read more

Another long week-end, thanks to Wills & Kate ;-) and what better way to spend it than outdoors....provided that the weather is good; and it was, so we headed off to Yorkshire in search of somewhere to pitch our tent and stumbled across Malham in the Yorkshire Dales......absolutely stunning little village with lots of walking, waterfalls, nice pubs and glorious sunshine. We did a 4.5 mile circular walk around the countryside surrounding the village and took lots of photo's, so again this is a photo blog.....hope you like!!... read more

Friday 19th June Another walk on the Dales The weather has improved a little today from yesterday and so has my cold.Mind you being out in that chilling wind would have cleared the worst sinus or head cold!!! With the black pudding and bacon from Tuesday market finished it was back to scrambled egg today.Heres hoping the Skipton market which we plan to go tomorrow has black pudding on offer somewhere. Cousin Iain and his wife Chris called for us around 10am and we drove off in their Renault Clio to Malham via a rather windy and narrow road to Malham from where we would start our walk on the dales. The weather was actually quite good for walking as the wind from the past couple of days had died away and although it was overcast ... read more

Sunday 4th May - Following breakfast, we just had time to finish off packing, before our friends Di, Helen and Ralph appeared at our door beaming and ready for the exciting day ahead! It was great to see some familiar faces! After stocking up with packed lunches (and fudge!), it was time to head out into the pouring was relentless and we truly received a soaking. Despite the rain, we were still able to appreciate the beauty of Malham Cove and the extensive area of limestone pavement above. After Helen gave quick explanation of the geology of the area (well remembered from her Due of Edinburgh days!), we pushed on to Malham Tarn. Malham Tarn is a sanctuary for birds and waterfowl and is approximately half a square mile. The rain continued to flow, and ... read more

Saturday 3rd May - After our epic 23 mile 'very uphill' beautiful trudge yesterday into Malham, we were very quickly starting to realise why the Pennine Way's total ascent is nearly 32,000ft - in just that one day, we felt like we had climbed Mount Everest! Feeling slightly stiff in the morning, we decided to give our legs and feet a rest - we know there are some lovely short walks around the picturesque village of Malham, but we decided it was sensible to take it easy and relax. This was also on the basis that our feet probably were in a state of shock and would probably quite enjoy a rest themselves. We spent an enjoyable day updating our blog and chatting with enthusiasm about our wonderful experiences hiking the Pennine Way to date. Tomorrow, ... read more

This morning we went to do baptisms for the dead in the temple. A couple of the Scots from last night were there, particularly one girl who had just turned 12 and was doing baptisms for the first time. We sort of overwhelmed the facilities there with our numbers, but it was nice to be at a temple were people knew how to pronounce my last name. (You wouldn’t think Muir would be so hard to pronounce, but apparently . . . .) I had a nice conversation with some of the people about the variety of accents across the UK. It’s amazing how hard it is to understand some people, especially with us moving around all the time: you just get used to one accent and we move to a new area! And the ... read more
