Walk 19: Snowed White & The River Wharfe

North Nab from Strid Wood: Now for those of you that have been following, you’ll know that I’m not too clever at getting up at 6.30am on a Saturday, so when Dave suggested another walk, I must’ve been feeling particularly perky to agree to go along.

On a couple of occasions on earlier walks we had seen the Howgill Fells from a distance but today was the day we met up close.
