Whelp Stone Cragg and Gisburn Forest
Sunday 13th janueary 2013

This would have been a decent walk before many of the trees were chopped down on the edge of Gisburn Forest, for a mile or so it was like walking through a warzone !!

Start of the walk and we have to go in to Yorkshire !!!!

The Dog and Partridge at Tosside

The path winds between the trees

Before emerging into a barren wilderness. It was really eerie around here.

Then on to open Moorland and ahead to Whelp Stone Crag

Lots of Mountain Bikers around here

A big rock.....with a hole in it !!!

The Gisburn Forest

Looking along the ridge

The forest below from the Trig Point

A good place for lunch...and a good view

Whelp Stone Crag Trig Point

The view back along the ridge

A bend in a stream !!

These menacing looking sheep started following me

Everytime i turned around they were right behind me

I managed to escape and made it back to Lancashire !!!
