My Walks And Visits Of The Three Peaks Country

Welcome to this part of my site featuring pictures from my walks around The Western parts of The Yorkshire Dales. The pictures in the order of 1 to 12 where taken from my visit of Horton In Ribblesdale, During Summer 2005 and feature the village with some snapshots of my walk up to the summit of Pen-y-Ghent, One of Yorkshire's highest peaks. Pictures in the order of 13 to 19 are from a Autumn visit of Ribblesdale and feature the Market town of Settle and surrounding villages. Settle is also the home of the famous Settle To Carlisle Railway, The line that refused to die as it is nicknamed, Because over the years of its life it has been under constant fret of closure due to the cost of keeping it in constant maintenance. As you can see, The pictures in the order of 20 to 27 were taken during Summer 2006 and feature pictures from a visit of Ribblehead, A very well known beauty and picnic spot of the Dales, As you can see in the 21st picture, The long arched viaduct attracts railway enthusiasts and visitors from all over the country. This viaduct and section of the line always needs the most constant maintenance, As it gets a good battering of the weather during the Winter Months, Due to High exposure.
