English: Pennine Way beside Malham Tarn The National Trail passes on the east side of Malham Tarn – itself an oddity in porous limestone country. Silurian slate pushed up by the Craven Fault ensures that the lake sits on an impervious bed of rock and thus does not drain away. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Here we are in very familiar territory, from Broughton to Gargrave to Airton, Kirkby Malham, and Malham.

Week 6 in the real world was 15 miles, some on the seawall, some on Mayne on the loop through the meadow and Village Bay.

Won’t describe in detail the Vancouver/Mayne weather which fluctuates between marvellous and wonderful.

This stretch of countryside is very special to Jenny and I, as we have stayed near the Pennine Way, three times in the last five years. We have been over for a myriad of activities, for weddings, funerals, fundraiser balls, pilgrimages, placing parents ashes, 50th reunions, Butcher Guild dinners, and visits with family and friends. We usually stay sort of midway between relatives and friends in Lancashire and Yorkshire, at Town End Farm, Airton, (about 100 yards from the Pennine Way) with a wonderful view of Malham Cove, superb accommodation, friendly hosts and a wonderful Farm Shop.
