Leave behind the Yorkshire Dales and head in the direction of the looming Lake District peaks as you pass over farmland, through a valley and by Victorian viaducts.
The views and landscapes are delightful today as more evidence of the approaching Lake District forms up ahead, as you pass through slate roofed villages and amble across a beck. The mighty Howgills dominate the skyline for most of the day. Pass Black Moss Tarn and cross the River Sprint before heading into Burneside, your next port of call.
