MALHAMDALE, YORKSHIRE - 26 JUNE to 3 JULY 2015

Newfield Hall - exterior
Panoramic view of the medium walking group setting out on the days walk in the Dales
Heading into Trollers Gill
Janet's Foss waterfall (in days gone by, the deep pool was used to wash sheep). Jennet, the local fairy queen was said to live in a cave at the back of the pool.
Gordale Scar where walkers scramble up the side of the waterfall if weather conditions are favourable.
Dry stone walls in the dales
A group of belted Galloway calves totally relaxed with people and dogs milling about.
Malham Cove with rock climbers on the third tier. The RSPB were in attendance and Peregrine Falcons could be seen nesting using their binoculars.
A Hoffman lime kiln built in 1873, at Langcliffe near Settle, which originally had 22 individual burning chambers.
Trow Gill - heading up the gully of this wooded limestone ravine.
Gaping Gill - this pothole has a 322 foot drop and is large enough to hold St Paul's cathedral.
Leaving the Gaping Gill area.
The last climb on the way home on our last days walking.
We never seemed to be walking in the same group together. Today Ivan felt the call of the mountains and joined the harder group to scale the 694m Pen-y-Ghent - one of Yorkshire's three Peaks.
