Good morning. And still I press on with the photo's from the weekend. I chose a more scenic route out of Pateley Bridge to go back to the car at Brimham Rocks. Up the hill, take the road for a short distance, then off on a track to the left. Heading for Knott Side, Blazefield, The Raikes, Cliff Top, and White Houses. A good choice, some lovely views.
There are a lot of footpaths around that area, it's quite confusing. I hoped I was going in the right direction for Brimham Rocks. At one point I wasn't sure where I was, and when I came to a junction it was a guess as to which path I should take. Time was getting on and I didn't want to be out late. I came to a farmhouse and knocked on the door. A young lady came to the door, and said, follow that track and it will take you to the car park at The Rocks. That was a relief. I came to some rock piles and thought I was there.
I must say, they are are impressive and well worth a visit.
Maps available at the Information Centre, with a big map on a board on the wall outside when they are closed. Go to their web site to find more information.
I was back at the car at 7pm, had a bite to eat, then drove back to Ripon arriving at 8pm for a second night there. What a great day that was. Checking the mileage on Bikehike I walked nine miles. I was ready for my bed.
I made a plan for Sunday. The car can stay here while I go for another walkabout. More pics about that to come on the next post.
Thanks for popping in. Toodle pip. ilona
