A Four Dales Up and Under
My new project for 2014
Now that 'A Three Peaks Up and Under' is to be published this summer, I am beginning work on a follow-up project exploring Malhamdale, Wharfedale, Langstrothdale and Littondale. The resulting 'Four Dales Up and Under' blog posts will be coming your way as I complete each chapter - and will be available on this site. The chapters of the new work will be as follows:
The 'Up' Section:
1 Conistone Dib and Mossdale Scar: Spectacular gorge and a disappearing river.
2 Old Grassington: The Medieval and Iron Age settlements.
3 Grass Wood: Local legends and Prehistoric settlements.
4 Yew Cogar Scar: Arncliffe's hidden showpiece.
5 The Druid's Altar.
6 The Benches of Buckden: traversing the head of Wharfedale.
7 Great Whernside.
8 Buckden Pike: Following Reynard's Footprints.
9 Simon's Seat and the Strid.
10 Troller's Gill.
11 Malham Cove: a wander up and beyond.
12 Malham Tarn: Lost worlds and water babies
13 Gordale Scar
14 Pikedaw and the Calamine Caverns
15 The Giant's Grave and Penyghent Gill
The 'Under' Section:
1 Dow Cave.
2 Dowkerbottom Cave: A Stalagmite Tomb.
3 Scoska Cave: Into a Lady's Chamber.
4 Langstroth Cave.
5 Giant's Grave Caves.
The chapter titles are still very much at the preparation stage, but I can't wait to get cracking with this and revisit all the old haunts in the eastern dales. I'll still be adding to the Three Peaks section also ... so watch this space.
Thanks for all your support over the last year. Happy adventuring ....
