A Walk in May

Here are some pictures from a short walk from Letcliffe Park on a sunny May Sunday.
We left Letcliffe by the stone style in the eastern boundary wall of the park and crossed to the end of Hodge Lane. The main picture shows the single tree atop the hill looking east.
Above Eastcliffe, we passed the ruined cottage and viewed the Barnoldswick vista before contouring along the hillside and crossed the lane which leads to Moor Side.
Following the wall side path, our walk took us through a buttercup filled meadow, then pasture with grazing sheep and their lambs.
The beck in the shady tree lined gill was deliciously cool and refreshing. Only a few weeks previously, this would have been a raging torrent of water coming off Weets Hill.
Our return to Letcliffe took us by Folly Lane, Forty Steps and the newly refurbished sett paved path to the bottom entrance to the park.
