2017_08_13 Buckden

Leader : Marg West                  Distance : 12.5 miles.


A great day for a great walk ! Marg led 11 walkers out of the carpark and up.

Dropping down to The White Lion pub we crossed the road and headed for Yockenthwaite.

From here it was all uphill to the summit of Horse Head Hill where we had lunch.

We were looking at all three of the Yorkshire peaks.

Birks moor was really boggy in places, but we traversed it OK.

Then the long sometimes boggy descent to Buckden, was followed by a drink in The White Lion.

The weather had been perfect for a really good day out.
