Walk 33: Less is Moor

Kilnsey Moor from Kilnsey: Again it had been a lengthy gap in between walks and I was itching to get going as we pulled into the lay-by just near Kilnsey Crag and prepared for the off.

I had been both excited and nervous about this day but it was a day that had to come. There are 214 so called Wainwright’s and that was a list that had to be taken on at some point.
