The Yorkshire Dales

I’ve been meaning to get out of Liverpool for a while. I have been busy with a lot of wedding photography though – And as the last couple of months has been the wedding season, a lot of photo editing tends to go along with this. However, I managed to get five days off and headed up to the Ribblesdale valley in the North Yorkshire Moors. I got off the train at Ribblehead station, after a 3-hour train journey.  I headed to the “Ribblehead viaduct” a short distance away from the station. I took a number of photos – but was slightly disappointed that the weather had turned considerably and that the Victorian viaduct was now covered in myst. I am though – quite pleased with the results that came from my first evening’s photography.

For my first night’s camp, I bivouacked on Low Sleight Rd, Carnforth, on the way to Ingleborough. This was a stone’s throw away from the Ribblehead viaduct. I made the bivvy – and a fire and then these guys arrived and wouldn’t leave – the smoke kept the flies away you see…. So I had to talk to them very kindly, as they were bullocks – and some had horns!

The next day I headed down to Ribblesdale-in-Horton to pick up some supplies. I then set off up Pen-y-ghent. Pen-y-ghent was enshrouded in Myst, and the closer to the summit the thicker the pea soup.

When I got to the top, the visibility was next to nothing, which was a shame considering the amazing views that can be had from there.

… The view coming down Pen-y-ghent, which was covered in mist.

Happy as Larry…..


The next morning I climbed Fountains fell and then down to Malham Tarn and onto Malham Cove, with its Limestone pavement.
