Walk Notes

I chose to walk this as the first section of the Trailblazer Pennine Way guide book update, simply because of the ease of getting to and from the walk and because it's one of my favourite sections. I parked at Ribblehead and caught the train back to Gargrave, from where I planned to walk the 30 miles back to the car. I started with a village survey, disappointed to find the promised chippy was long gone, so had a pub meal in the Old Swan before wandering along the Way to find somewhere to camp outside the village. I was forced into my choice of pitch by a torrential downpour and spent the whole night listening to rain drumming on the tent.
