Craven Country

Sun. 7th Nov. 2010
                 Today our weekend walk was in the lovely craven countryside about 15 miles from where we live.
This was a circular walk from the village of Airton following the River Aire along the Pennine way to the hamlet of Hanlith then a climb up out of the valley across Hanlith Moor to Weets Top, a climb of about 700ft.We returned across Calton Moor gradually loosing height  down to the small village of Calton and then back on the road for a short distance to the riverside at Airton , the walk was a good 7 miles.

Along the fast flowing river Aire

We bypassed Malham with the famous Malham Cove in the background

                 Looking north to the limestone cleft of Gordale Scar
                                          Hanlith Moor

        The walk back across Calton Moor with Pendle Hill in the distance

                  Almost the end of the walk the.... village of Calton
