Teddy Tours Dodd Fell

Earby – Thornton – Rylstone – Cracoe – Threshfield – Kilnsey – Kettlewell – Starbotton – Buckden – Hubberholme – Oughtershaw – North gate – Kidhow gate
had to open the road gate at North gate so took photo
opened Kidhow gate and drove through to park by the Pennine Way
looking across the PW to the Lake District
walked along until I found a gully going up in the right direction, which although still frozen, looked an easier climb
looking back down the gully
the views started to open up as I got higher
the Mk1 eyeball could see a white spot above, the camera had to zoom !
the plateau of Dodd Fell is enough to give you webbed feet after splodging across to the Trig point
with views to Penyghent with Pendle Hill in the background
 and looking down Wensleydale 
decided to just have a wine and go back to a dryer more sheltered spot for lunch
set off back down with a last look at the Trig point
back along the PW to the van, turned Garmin Off ! drove back to what I thought was a Lime Kiln on the way up turned Garmin back On ! So it drew a straight line between ??? It does say level disused on the map which on closer inspection it is (but it doe’s look like a kiln)
made a coffee but decided not to cook and made do with a Snicker and a Banana
while watching Morecambe bay light up
drove back down Langstroth Dale and stopped to photograph the Yockenthwaite stone circle at SD 899 794
 with a final photo of the George Inn at Hubberholme
just thought I’d share cheers all Danny

  8. Nice pictures. The Yockenthwaite stone circle looks interesting, never heard of it.

  9. Just read through this one Danny. What an amazing viewing point that is, a massive area of the UK to be seen from up there! I see what you mean with the 'white spot' though, it almost looks like you are higher than the fell in those pictures too :)

    Thanks for sharing
