Upper Wharfedale 14 November 2021

Ten of us set out from Buckden car park on Sunday.  We were grateful for the unusually mild weather for this time of year.  After a short climb we reached the waterfalls above Cray beside the B6160.  We then walked up behind the White Lion Inn on to the flank of Yockenthwaite Moor and enjoyed our coffee on an outcrop looking down the Wharfedale valley.  Our lunch stop further along afforded us more splendid views up Langstrothdale in lovely Autumn colours.  After dropping down to the hamlet of Yockenthwaite itself, we took the pretty riverside path to Hubberholme where we visited the Norman church.  There was a magnificent display of poppies for Remembrance Day in its churchyard, which is the resting place of JB Priestley’s ashes.  A short stretch from Hubberholme took us back to Buckden.
