I decided to make use of the Settle-Carlisle line to create a linear walk. I arrived earlier than expected so I parked about a mile from Ribblehead station (thereby reducing the amount of walk at the end) and used the train to deliver me to Garsdale – not one of the great train journeys of our time, but at £4.50 for a 13 minute journey it was bloody expensive! It was cold today as well, and it rained. I think the summer has well and truly departed and we’re already getting that blustery, rainy awful autumn weather. Ah well, it was nice in May.
