The Inn Way... to the Yorkshire Dales - 4th Edition

The Inn Way... to the Yorkshire Dales is being updated.
New text, new cover, new photos - but the fantastic walking route (and pubs) will remain the same. Available late October 2008. Order yours today!

The Howgill Fells, Cautley Spout and The Calf

Sedbergh, Cautley Spout, The Calf (676 m) and Calders.

What a walk! The first half of the walk through the Rawthey Valley to the Cross Keys at Cautley was beautiful. Old tracks, wooded slopes, farmyards and a sweeping valley. Then the excitement began. A steep climb up along a pitched-stone path beside the tumbling waters of Cautley Spout brought us to Red Gill Beck - this climb took us up 150 m in the space of 300 m !Then, a steady ascent via Force Gill to the summit of The Calf, in mist. Occassionally the mist cleared to leave pockets of clear sky with the green valleys over 2,000-ft far below. One of the best walks I've done.
