Kirkby Stephen – Nov 2019

And so dear friends, a brief farewell to Kirkby Stephen for another year with a few more images taken during the weekend. Including a little stroll down by the River Eden shortly after arriving, Kirkby Stephen railway station after my first walk on Sunday and no visit would be complete without a couple of visits to the Black Bull Hotel bar.

For anybody who fancies learning a bit more about the Settle & Carlisle line there is a full route map here and a nice Wikipedia article here … go on, you know you want to.

Until next year …

Ribblehead, Blea Moor & Denthead circular walk – Nov 2018

This was the first of my two planned walks during this year’s visit to Kirby Stephen and the day started off a tad worse than the met office had forecast! Luckily, it soon cleared up and became a beautifully sunny, yet quite cold, day.

I was going to save this walk for the Monday in the hope that it would be quiet but the weather forecast was much better for Sunday so I decided to set off reasonably early to miss the crowds. There were still quite a few people there when I arrived, though nowhere near as many as when I got back from the walk!

The walk followed the route below, starting on the B6255 at the South end of Ribblehead Viaduct, and was a little over 8 miles in length.

So, with no more ado … my favourite images from the walk …
