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 !!!
