So back to December 2009
Friday morning was fine and sunny so I set off, but by Settle it was getting dark and by Horton in Ribblesdale it was slinging it down and by Ribblehead it was turning to snow but by Gearstones it was back sunny again. I parked just off the road on the right before Gearstones and followed an old Bridleway to an ancient stone footbridge spanning Thorns Gill, soon to be the infant River Ribble (B on the map)
the moss making it seem a forgotten place yet it's within site of Ribblehead viaduct with all it's hoards of trippers
well the Trough was !
So tenderizedPork fillet (bashed with a spikey mallet) dipped in beaten egg then spiced breadcrumbs and fried in olive oil in an 8" cast iron skillet, peas and carrots kept warm on a solid fuel tablet stove, and Smash mashed spuds which seems to have drastically improved just lately ? with a sprinkling of grated Nutmeg, and a brew with the left over water, the wine was a South African Kumala Pinotage and Shiraz
just thought I'd share cheers all Danny
