Today I met up with Matt from MyPennines for a walk with plenty of things to see along the way. First up was Catrigg Force, a spectacular waterfall just a short way detour from the Pennine Bridleway near Stainforth. Next stop was Jubilee Cave, where we stopped and had lunch – and then we went on to Victoria Cave about 500m south. Matt then went off to look for Attermire Cave while I had a break, because I wasn’t in finest form.
We scrambled up Warrendale Knotts and then descended towards Settle, into Langcliffe. We then crossed the Ribble at a weir and followed the river up to Stainforth Force. I pretty much collapsed here and just chilled out while Matt took some photos.
This is an EXCELLENT walk, even though it didn’t feel like it at the time. I can’t wait to go back and do it again.
