 2019-08-01 - Hindscarth and Dale Head with Alison, Ana and Jack.

 

We headed to Little Town for this walk which took us up Hindscarth and then on to Dale Head before dropping down into The Newlands valley before returning to the start of the walk. It was hard work but very rewarding. The trek down the valley seemed much longer than it looks on the map but it was full of interest. The waterfalls were particularly stunning.

A bit of a scramble

Still more
