Richard arrived around 9.30am, we packed up and headed out to Gradbach for the start of our morning's walk.
Just before we left the barn, the farmer managed to fleece a tenner from us for the loan of the straw!
The walk; From Gradbach, a beautiful walk along the River Dane Valley, to Danebridge, before a short climb up to Hangingstone Farm. The highlight was Lud's Church; a long narrow chasm in the hill, its high rock walls coated with moss, makes it an impressive sight! From there. a spot of "off roading" down the steep wooded hillside to the track back down by the river, returning to the car park.
