Moors and valleys 80 miles
Between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District lies the Lune Valley and the Settle-Carlisle railway, a remarkably beautiful landscape, but one that is ignored by the bulk of visitors to this region
…from the remains of medieval castles
….to the sweeping flow of valleys following the winding watercourses that formed them

….to have our progress arrested by a fortifying cafe break in Kirby Stephen. 80 miles covered with over 4000 feet of climbing.
The climbing muscles were being broken in……in preparation for the mother of all climbs tomorrow……the Struggle and the Kirkstone Pass. Watch this space…..
