After a good nights sleep and a good breakfast at the Red Lion in Burnsall we continued on the Dales Way to Kettlewell along the River Wharfe.
The water level was quite low, surprising since the Dales area had serious flooding just 3 weeks ago. We were in Grassington a bit early for a pint so carried on through. It was a bit chilly but bright.
I was looking forward to taking photos of the limestone pavement near Grassington and above Conistone Dib. Both places I knew through running courses in the area. Unfortunately, there was little sunshine, so no photos better than I already have.
From here we diverted up to Cappelstone Gate trig point, to stay high rather than follow the Dales Way down into the valley. Unfortunately the clouds came down so no views but it was easy walking.
Kettlewell is a very pleasant small village with the bonus of having 3 pubs. We had our first pint at the Bluebell Inn but I was disappointed with mine so we strolled across the road to the Racehorses for our second. Excellent Timothy Taylor real ales. I had a pint of Landlord. Then we walked to the King’s Head to check in for the night and change out of our walking clothes for the evening.
We decided to eat at the Racehorses but returned to the King’s Head later.
