The Howgills and Cautley Spout

Leaving Wensleydale behind we stopped in the town of Sedbergh, known off its book shops. There were a few although just about every other type of shops also stocked books just to keep up the illusion.

We set off both over the Howgills, a nice grass covered ridge. Nice waking once you’d climbed up out of the town, which was a big of a stiff intro.

Once on top we looped right and down Cautley Spout which claims to god England’s highest waterfall above ground. Gaping Gill on nearby Ingleborough falls a greater distance but into a pot hole.

A pretty spot, and a nice view. Not a very clear day unfortunately so didn’t get much of a view of the Lake District which was just brooding through the misty haze.
