Oughtershaw Moss

Looking back towards Oughtershaw Moss

Two days ago my partner Catherine finished walking the Dales Way. I did the walk in 2010 and loved it to bits. It’s a gentle walk, but ever so relaxing.

Anyway, that seemed to be a flimsy excuse to dig in to my Dales Way photo archives and show some of them on A Sunday Picture.

A lot of the Dales Way goes along rivers but every now and then the trail heads out on to moorland, like here on day 3 when I crossed Oughtershaw Moss.

I sat near this ruined barn and ate some chocolate and took it all it. It was a fine view and no mistake.

I have a deep affection for the Yorkshire Dales. They’re not particularly showy and flamboyant like the Lakes, or as wild as the Highlands. But they have a wonderful, happy feel about them. They’re a place that makes me excited to visit. And looking at these photos again, just makes me want to go back for more.

You can read about my Dales Way journey, over in the Walks section, pr get the book.
