Bamford Edge


Bamford Edge

I’ve never been to Bamford Edge before, but it overlooks Ladybower and I’ve been around that area a few times before.

Bamford Edge

There is a small patch for cars near the top of the road, cross over a turnstyle and start the walk!

Bamford Edge

It’s not a far walk, but the first stretch of it is quite steep. Once you are up on the top though, it’s flat and the path is clear.

We got there just in time for sunset, and by the time we had walked back to the car it was just about dark.

Malham part 3

Gordale Scar

Even though the weather was miserable, I did appreciate the mist. Maybe not the rain so much, but I do love misty, bleak landscapes.

Malham Cove

We had tea at Beck Hall and it was very nice. We had lunch at a pub in the village which wasn’t so good.

When we woke up on Sunday it was sunny (The forecast said it would snow overnight and be foggy in the morning) so that was a bit annoying because had I known it would be nice I would have gotten up for the sunrise!

Back home now though, awaiting the next holiday – the Isle of Arran!

Malham Pt. 2

Even though it was forecast to be chucking it down all day we decided to do the circular walk. We went in the direct of Janet’s Foss – Gordale Scar – Malham Cove. I had wanted to climb up the scar but the weather conditions weren’t ideal and I’m not that brave!

When we first set out it was only drizzling a bit, so I was optimistic that the weather forecast wouldn’t be right…

But by the time we got to Gordale Scar it was chucking it down! Then it chucked it down whilst e walked to Malham Cove. Then it stopped raining for the walk back.

Wyming Brook

Wyming Brook

After a rather cold and miserable week I suggested to kB that we go out for a walk. The chosen location was Wyming Brook, which isn’t far from Rivelin Valley that I’ve been to before, but although I’ve probably been to Wyming before, it’s not a location I can remember going to. It’s not too far out of Sheffield city centre, and is just past where my grandma and grandad used to live.

Overlooking the Brook
There is a little (free) car park, and the route is quite nice and easy. It’s very rocky and up/down hill but we looped around the whole thing in about an hour and half.

Before stopping off for a beer (for kB) and a diet coke (for me), and driving home.
