 -01-08-2019-- 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 bright, sunny start to the walk from Little Town


In next to no time we're looking down on the world


A bit of a scramble

Something 'amusing' going on

The path climbs up slightly and then drops back down into the Newlands valley


Waterfalls along the path of descent


And more


Still more

And a field full of Lamas as we return to the start of the walk
