St Andrew's Church, Sedbergh, East Cumbria, founded around 1130, is well worth a visit and PLEASE leave a donation or purchase the excellent guide booklet for the church. It has much 12th and 13th century work and was restored in 1886.

The trip to Sedbergh, The Howgill Fells and Dentdale  - The return home via Pendragon Castle

Driving on the Tommy Road towards Mallerstang Edge and Pendragon Castle

After the page 29 walk we left the A683 Sedbergh-Kirkby Stephen road, to take a minor road at OS ref 756038 (the so-called 'Tommy Road') across to the B6259 road, which you join near Pendragon Castle. So, more spectacular driving as you head towards Mallerstang Edge.

 

Pendragon Castle, standing on its defensive mound, is a 12th century Norman Keep with a 14th century garderobe turret.

 

The highest remaining walls stand proud but look a little fragile!

 

The slope down from the mound with Wild Boar Fell in the distance-left.

 

Sheep happily graze around the castle ruins, which are on private land, but access is allowed.

 

The limestone ridges of Mallerstang Edge runs right across the western view from the castle.

 

Looking down to the road bridge, a river crossing that would be defended by Pendragon Castle.

 

The peak of Wild Boar Fell on the distant horizon and then off south on the B6259 to join the A684 and head east for home.

Watch out as go further west towards Sedbergh as the landscape gets higher and wilder and engineering-architectural gems like the viaducts on the Settle-Carlisle railway (near Garsdale Head in this case) and finally onto Sedbergh in East Cumbria 'signposted' when the Howgill Fells (the object of the trip) come into view.

Wensleydale Railway  Wensleydale Railway

A quick call in to the Wensleydale Railway whose starting point is at Leeming Bar, North Yorkshire, must come back for a steam trip to Bedale and Leyburn, but no time, so driving on to Castleton on the North York Moors, and so, back from visiting one national park, to return home to live in another, brill!!!!
