Balderdale & The Calf – Nov 2019

small image of walking boots

This year’s visit to Kirkby Stephen was definitely one of two halves … one good, one not quite so! The walk detailed here fell into the former category, even if it was hard going on my poor feet.

The route directions came from one of my favourite sites, Visorando as can be seen below:

The weather forecast looked very good for a long walk … and indeed this was to be a long walk (download the Google Earth Pro kmz file here).

So time to let the images speak for themselves …

Plus a bonus video for all you lucky people! …

One of many gills running down into Balderdale Beck, it was most tranquil (as Bill once said!)

And there you have it … very nice it was too! If you bear with, until I post details of my second walk of the weekend, I’ll let you see the damage this walk (and my ageing boots) did to my feet … beware those of a squeamish nature!

    1. I know, wait until you see the ‘damage’ photo on the next post though ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
      The walk was worth every yard my friend, it was hard work in places but stunning … one of my favourite walks so far.

  1. Love the pics Merv. 10+ miles! Thatโ€™s an amazing hike. Views look incredible and I could listen to the babbling water on a loop. All very peaceful.

    1. Thanks, it can be hard to keep images interesting when the scenery is all very similar … think I managed it though. Wasn’t sure about posting the video but if you find it therapeutic, then my work here is done ๐Ÿ˜Ž
