Jan reports :-

I had volunteered to lead the ‘A’ walk in the Bolton estate, from the Strid Tea rooms up to ‘Simon’s Seat’.  When we did the Recce some weeks ago we had somehow missed the ‘unmissable’ waterfall but located it this time where we had elevenses while a red kite soared above us. The temperature dropped as we crossed Bardon Fell  and neared the top where we took in the views, first from Lord’s seat and then onto Simon’s Seat for lunch. We found a spot out of the wind but were soon on our way descending to the river Wharfe and following the Dales Way along the Strid, back to the cars.
