Notes: Yes, I know, another bloody Yorkshire Top. Well that's my burden for this year and for the next few months yet. I say burden, but it's been a great bagging list this. I've completed the original Top 30 list, but felt I needed to be a bit more scientific about the list, so I expanded it to include all the Nuttalls, Deweys and HuMPs inside the Dales National Park boundary. That was great - it gave me another 35 hills to visit! So now I have a bagging list with 66 names on it and I've now done 48 of them. Today 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.
