Ease Gill, Crag Hill and Gragareth

15/09/2020: My second walk from a week in the Yorkshire Dales. Crossing the border in to Lancashire, for a 13 mile walk around Crag Hill, Great Coum and Gragareth.

Tuesday 15th September 2020

This would be my second walk in the Yorkshire Dales. Although it would first involve a twenty-minute car journey away from Ingleton and in to… Lancashire! However, I was still within the boundary of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Selworthy Circular

Saturday 27th October 2018

This was the most recent walk I’ve led for Brunel Walking Group. It may even be the last one I lead for 2018. I reckon I’ve now done six or seven this year.

For me personally, this was a return to the coastal side of northern Exmoor that I’d not seen for a couple of years. I didn’t fancy driving down and having to fare the expense of fuel alone. So, I decided to take the group and without having recently pre-walked the route!
