But first, some general views and comments on Arkengarthdale

A general view looking north-west up Arkengarthdale from the road up from Reeth.

 

Scenes of the northeast side of Arkengarthdale, scarred by mining and quarrying operations.

 

 

 

 

 

The double 'ditch' from a mining hush in Arkengarthdale.


(1) Circular walk from Langthwaite up Slei Gill (Sleigill) and over Booze Moor

The pictures illustrate Walk 9 "Slei Gill and Booze Moor" from Paul Hannon's Walking Country "Swaledale"

There always seem to be cocks and hens in Langthwaite car park, several quite lively varieties!

Its a good place to start walking in Arkengarthdale.

 

Turn right out of the car park and head towards the village ...

... but soon turn right down to the Red Lion Pub, Langthwaite ....

...  and crossing the bridge over the river.

 

Then turn right at the Red Lion (nice pub to call in to) to follow the path by the river.

 

Then follow the path by Arkle Beck up through woodland which eventually leads up Slei Gill (Sleigill).

But, just before the ascent, Greenways Flock of pedigree Ryelands Sheep!

As delightful as the wild flowers!

 

 

Looking southeast down Arkengarthdale to Swaledale.

 

Passing up Slei Gill passed evidence of the old lead mine workings.

 

 

Looking down Slei Gill across to Calver Hill on Reeth Low Moor.

 

North Rake hush ?

 

The 'disfigured' landscape from lead mining.

 

 

A pause for lunch while the weather improved! Our friendly Scottie wasn't bothered at all - tougher than you think are these Scotch Terriers!

 

Approaching the head of Slei Gill ...

 

... continuing up Slei Gill passed a somewhat dramatically split tree.

 

At the top of Slei Gill is the remains of a wheel house which supported a water wheel to provide power.

 

Near a 'hut' lies an abandoned piece of agricultural machinery and then joining the mine track heading west across Booze Moor between the many spoil heaps from the mining operations.

 

Looking from east to west across Arkengarthdale from Booze Moor.

Smoke from heather burning casts a dramatic swathe of grey across Arkengarthdale ...

... before heading south towards the hamlet of Booze ...

 

The cattle are not disturbed by us or the smoke of heather burning.

 

Looking down on Booze ...

Looking down onto Arkle Town and Langthwaite.

 

The church of St Mary in Langthwaite, Arkengarthdale (built 1819).

 

Walking down through the rows of cottages in Langthwaite Village ...

 

and back over the river and taking a right deviation to look at the church.

 

St Mary's Church (right above, left below) was built in 1818-1819.

 

Langthwaite Church and Arkengarthdale Methodist Church aka the Wesleyan Chapel of 1882.

 

The interior of the church of St Mary and the two fonts!

 

Walking back to the car park is a reminder of the lead mining days of Langthwaite lead miners and the mining in Arkengarthdale and the cocks and hens are still hopeful of more food in Langthwaite car park.

 

The right turn from the car park (to the right) where the walk started.


Walk (2) Circular walk from Langthwaite to Whaw

The pictures illustrate Walk 10 "Arkengarthdale" from Paul Hannon's Walking Country "Swaledale"

 

Arkle Beck

 

Down the field you can see Stang Bridge then you rise away from it up the minor road.

 

Good views southeast down Arkengarthdale

 

A pause for thought in lovely Arkengarthdale

 

An excellently preserved limekiln near Whaw?

 

Old mine workings across the road from Swallow House, Arkengarthdale.

 

The gate at Swallow House, on the road, BUT we should have been lower down alongside Arkle Beck!

 

The powder house from the C.B. Mining Company

 

Passing Langthwaite St Mary's Church before heading back to the car park in Langthwaite.

 


The Charles Bathurst Inn in Pictures

 

The Charles Bathurst Inn (The C.B. Inn) near Langthwaite in Arkengarthdale.

A great place to stay, excellent accommodation, food, views, walks from your room!, quoits matches etc. etc.
