I got into Malham in plenty of time, and after calling in at the post office in order to post off some postcards and a film and some maps which are no longer needed I decided to have a restful afternoon.
When I got to the YH I had a great surprise - Sam had been taking a day off to rest his left foot which had a very large blister on it. We went to the pub and did a little shopping. And then of course went back to the pub. Not that I would ever want to give the impression that I like alcohol...
Generally an easy half-days walking. There is absolutely nothing strenuous about this leg of the walk, and although the walk is along flat valley bottoms for most of its way it is still quite scenic.
I also decided to take the next day off as a rest day. There were two reasons for this; firstly to give my back a day to recover, and secondly because Sam had decided to give his foot another day to recover. His blister is actually quite impressive and unfortunately goes rather deep. he has also discovered the wonders of Compeed blister plasters, and is wearing one over his blister.
I am not going to bother giving any directions for any of the stages of the Pennine Way; there are many route descriptions produced that will better anything that I could produce. The main guides I used were the OS National Trail Guides, which come complete with strip maps of the route. Click on one of the links below to go to the Amazon page for each guide.
This makes a total distance of 9.2 miles, with 1007 feet of ascent and 846 feet of descent.
Please note that I take no responsibility for anything that may happen when following these directions. If you intend to follow this route, then please use the relevant maps and check the route out before you go out. As always when walking, use common sense and you should be fine.
If you find any information on any of these routes that is inaccurate, or you wish to add anything, then please email me.
