Walk – Hardcastle Crags Via Salem

Another sunny day, another sunny walk with Lisa.

We took the riverside walk via Salem to Midgehole…

Along the road into the Crags, then back down to the riverside footpath…

Eventually arriving at the National Trust visitor centre at Gibson Mill where we had a coffee each and shared a big piece of toffee cake between us.

You get nowt for nowt!

We walked back the way we’d come and spotted one of the Hebden Bridge herons fishing in the river. Unfortunately the photographs I took of it are out of focus for some reason. It’s a pity – it is a fine-looking bird. I used to think that there was only one heron in the neighbourhood, but someone told me that they’s seen two adult birds with some chicks a couple of years ago. I’ve only ever seen one at a time.

It was another nice stroll and a reminder of how lucky we are to live here.

Now I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s cycle event, a local favourite – Spring Into The Dales!

  1. How much is the toll charge for a bicycle?

  2. I assume that either cyclists and pedestrians were banned, or they were allowed to use the toll road for nothing. Unless they were transporting horses, sheep or pigs of course… 😉

    Don’t know what I’m doing online when we are setting off on SITD in less than 7 hours time! 😯
