A dry evening at the campsite, followed by a night of rain. Luckily, it stopped when the alarm went off, but we had low cloud all morning, with a few sprinkles of rain. By afternoon the wind picked up and the sun came out, but a bit on the chilly side.
Our first stop was at Bingley, where we to top up on food. Fortuitously, our route took us past The Myrtle Grove, Wetherspoons, where Lynn was able to get her hot chocolate fix and Steve could charge his phone.
We initially left Bingley along the Liverpool to Leeds Canal, before attacking the long climb up to Ilkley Moor, fortunately the cloud had lifted enough to give us panoramic views.
Steve was singing ‘On Ilkley Moor bah’tat’ but his version of the lyrics was not what Lynn recalled.
After the summit we dropped down and picked up the Millennium Way which took us to Ghyll House Farm campsite, where we had pick of the pitches as we are the only ones there. A sloping site on a hillside with fabulous views. Chatting to the owner we discovered he does B & B for cows as a sideline over the winter season, not come across that before.
