Horton-In-Riblesdale, 24th October 2004.

Ed and Adrian led a short six-hour walk approaching Pen-y-Ghent from the North West. From the usual dropping off place at the car park near the viaduct the group experimented by heading East along the road for 20 minutes before veering South by a Youth Hostel. There was some initial difficulty in finding a clear path on the ground in the position indicated by the map. After some wandering, the group reacquired the path near to a condemned farmhouse and crossed a stone stile. The path became boggy for the rest of the approach to Pen-y-Ghent, which saw Steve ? take a miraculously ill prepared jump and land knee high in a bog. The rest of the walk was uneventful.

Steve and Tom lead a five-hour walk over Ingleborough. The group set out from the viaduct and after a short section along the road took a path off to the right. This lead (very steelpy) to the top of ?? and then across the moors to the summit path of Ingleborough. Here the group admired the view, and then remarked that it was rather cold and windy, and so made a hasty descent in search of somewher to stop for lunch. The group arrived back in Horton shortly after 4pm and were soon in the safe, warm confines of the pub. A great day was had by all.
