Today has gone FASSSTT! :D I've just been packing my bag for a hike tomorrow, got 2 litres of water, my slingshot gear, and everything I need for some lunch in the woods...it ain't exactly light! :eek: :D The weather forecast is good, but in Yorkshire, that rarely means you don't need to pack a raincoat! :rolleyes: I'm going to head out to Rougemont on the River Wharfe again, got a circular walk planned, hopefully it'll be a great day :) :thumbsup:

Hopefully, warmer than the last time I was out that way :D ;) It was still a nice day though :) :thumbsup:

I reckon it might be me who ate all the pies :rolleyes: I had a steak bake for dinner, steak & onion pie for tea, followed by apple pie & custard :D ;) :thumbsup:

Crikey! we'll have to do an emergency pie drop from Lancashire.😋

I did try to represent our side as much as I could, but it was tough!😁👍🍺🍺

Really been sticking to the Ironwood lately.

Have a great Friday, all!
Yip, our Teutonic friends are no slouches when it comes to beer. I'm sure you did as well as you could 🥴 🙂

HHB received some care today.

Happy weekend friends! Today was my first saturday off in the past 8 weeks, i got to sleep in till 7:00!! Had a relaxed morning of coffee eggs and cartoons with my wife and my boy. We visited a local brewery with some friends and their kids. Then grilled some chicken and burgers when we got home. Had my trusty lambsfoot in my pocket all day. 20210612_173124_copy_756x1008.jpg 20210612_202215_copy_669x790.jpg

Been enjoying following your adventures Dan, looks like a fantastic trip :) Glad you were able to get some plinking in, love the pic :cool: :thumbsup:

Good morning Guardians, hope everyone is having a lovely weekend :) I had a fantastic day yesterday, but a 10 mile hike in hot weather, with a fairly heavy pack, really took it out of me, and I was shattered when I got home yesterday evening! I'll get some pics up soon :) Have a great Sunday Guardians :) :thumbsup:

We had a fantastic day out hiking yesterday, in glorious weather, which only got better throughout the day. There was a great deal of wildlife to be seen, the most striking being a white deer, which we actually spotted from the top deck of the bus, shortly before we alighted at Harewood Bridge for the start of our walk. We walked upstream, along the banks of the River Wharfe, with views of Almscliffe Crag, which along with Weeton Church, would dominate the skyline throughout most of our walk. While not particularly high, the crag surmounts the whole area, and was once a popular spot for local rock-climbers.

We were not doing a circuit of Almscliffe though, nor of the church, but of ancient Rougemont Castle, the remains of which lie in woodland adjacent to the River Wharfe. There isn't a great deal to see today unfortunately, but the woods are tranquil and beautiful, and made a good spot to stop for lunch, and for me to experiment with various fire-lighting techniques, and to test out my new slingshot :)

After spending an hour in the woods, we set off hiking again, and it wasn't long before we emerged into the sunshine once again, walking over fields to an ancient packhorse bridge.

No matter how remote, from tranquil woodland to moor and mountain, every inch of the English countryside is owned by someone, and the only legal access, without prior permission, is along the ancient paths and trackways, known as 'Rights of Way'. Sadly, many miles of public footpaths and bridleways disappear every year, and are often ploughed up, illegally re-routed, or obstructed by gates and barbed-wire. Allowing access, and maintaining stiles, is the responsibility of the landowner, but stiles are often left broken, neglected, or strewn with barbed-wire. Unfortunately, we were to encounter many such stiles in the following miles of our walk. Typically, they weren't stiles at all, but just a small gap in a hawthorn hedge, allowing narrow access to a four-foot fence, which had to be precariously scaled :( Crossing the first two obstacles, we eventually made it to the high-steepled church of Saint Barnabas, close to the old village of Weeton, which today is no more than a cluster of houses, with not so much as a pub or post office remaining.

After pausing for a short rest in the small churchyard, we continued on our journey in the hot sunshine, passing through Weeton, and what was once its school, and into a collection of stables. The path led us past large gardens, and through more fields, before it began to climb, with increasing steepness, uphill. We noted that a new fence had diverted the footpath from its original, more gentle, route.

At the summit of our walk, we enjoyed fine views of the surrounding countryside, before beginning the long descent back to Rougemont, where I lit my twig-stove again, and we had some ramen noodles and miso to replace the salt lost during our hill-climb.

After some more slingshot practice in the woods, we retraced our earlier steps along the banks of the Wharfe, and after another steep climb, found sanctuary in a pub, where that first pint didn't touch the sides! :D :thumbsup:
