Settle to Horton via Attermire, Stainforth, Oxenber Woods, Austwick, Norber and Nick Pot - 11th April 2015

Today we joined a whole bunch of Ripon Runners who were over in the area for a weekend of running. They'd devised a gorgeous route to run from Settle to Ingleton, where they were staying at the youth hostel, and me and Hester (who knows a fair few RR's) joined them for much of their run. We finally left them to run over the summit of Ingleborough down to Ingleton at Nick Pot, where we swerved east and headed back home in Horton. A fab run in, on the day, totally unexpected gorgeous weather.
