Rawthey Valley

In the Howgills, a quiet triangle of grassy round fells between the M6 and the towns of Kirby Stephen and Sedbergh, and, since 2016, part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The River Rawthey forms the eastern boundary separating them with Baugh Fell. The photo was taken from Fawcett Bank Rigg on a climb up to Arant Haw.

Lune Valley

On the Howgills. Blease Fell to be precise. Didn’t see a soul. Just the hum of the M6 down in the Lune Valley breaking the silence.


In the Lakes for the weekend. Stopped for a trot up the Howgills on the way. It was raining when I set off, raining when I finished in Sedbergh and on the tops, a white out.
