Highest Waterfall.

Approaching the market town of Hawes. This is a nice place to stop and look around, there is also a good fish and chip shop. Unfortunately rain was once again threatening so I wanted to get to my camp and get the tent up so didn't stop on this time.

The highest waterfall in England - not very impressive by world standards but had to see it. My camp was close by the waterfall and even closer by was the pub where I spent a really enjoyable night sampling cider with a Dutch couple.

1) As you will see from above I started work early this morning so as to assist the farmer with the sheep.


Sara We have our fair share of mud here too at the moment as my poor boots will testify to. never mind, spring is getting closer by the day.

Jeanette Well lets hope they get the people who did set some of the fires. If I had my way they would get paraded in front of all the people who lost everything but I guess thats not PC - ha! You also have to remember all the animals that died too.

The Weaver of Grass I notice there have been rabbits in the garden, you can see their prints in the snow but they don't usually do any damage. The veg plot is in a walled garden so its not so easy for the rabbits to get in provided people keep the gates closed. The birds are the worst pests.

The view of the green landscape with the church tower seeming to be in a dip reminds me a little of north Cornwall (but there the fields are small with lots of hedges).
