Hob Hole 2 August

Having signed up for Daves's walk I ended up leading the 2nd group.  We walked over Great Hograh  Moor with fine views of Common Dale and Westerdale and the 1st group way in the distance to a little oasis at Great Hograh Beck where we took a break.

We headed on Armouth Wath where we saw the 1st group just leaving after their lunch so we took their place. 

We walked along Middle Head Top to Burton Howe, a late bronze age burial mound but, oops, we should not have been there!  I took a wrong turning and added an extra mile.

We went along the Cleveland Way with great views and with rain showers dotted all over the vale.  Then into Baysdale where the Abbey used to be a twelfth-century Cistercian Nunnery.  So back Hob Hole and completing a 12 mile walk.j
