Down in the Ribble Valley again

Thursday 9th Sept 2010.
                Looking back to Sunday 29th Aug. and another walk in the Ribble Valley The walk started and finished in the lovely village of Bolton by Bowland. This is lovely countryside almost on our doorstep. In the past few years there seems to have been a change in farming practices and some of the farmers are now growing Maize to feed the cattle during the winter months, this is quite a novelty to us folk up north.

                      The footpath through the Maize (quite a novelty)

                              The banks of the River Ribble near Sawley

                            Pendle Hill always present in the background

                                  The Ribble Valley above Sawley

                        The flat topped Fountains Fell in the distance

Walking north, in the distance the limestone of the craven area near to Malham with Fountains Fell to the left in the distance

  1. David, your photographs always confirm the beauty of our British countryside. I love the photo of the river. The one of the maize certainly is a novelty - it makes me imagine walking alone through it in the in a Stephen King novel!
