Caton and Littledale (and Caton Moor) – 10.5 mile circular

Caton-Moor Today we walked with Matt who runs www.mypennines.co.uk. Unlike me, Matt knows where he is going, so it was reassuring to have him with us.

We walked up to Caton Moor from Bull Beck car park and knowing there was some road involved we got this out of the way first.

The weather started off a little overcast but ended up being lovely and sunny, although visibility was a little poor so it wasn’t a day for distance photos.

One of the purposes for today was to check out the Bluebells. Unfortunately there weren’t any. Well, there was a handful, but certainly not the blue carpets you might expect to see at this time of year.

On the final stretch we went down to the River Lune and other than some cow dodging (Matt is actually more terrified than me – which is quite funny) we made good progress and got back to the car shortly after lunch.
