Day 3 Hubberholme to Dent

This was quite a tough one. The first 5 miles from Hubberholme to Beckermonds through Langstrothdale, was possibly the best stretch of river walking I have ever done, it was idyllic, remote and so peaceful – if only the rest of the day was on the same level.

After leaving the River Wharfe it was uphill to Oughtershaw and a very soggy walk uphill to Cam Houses where the Pennine Way was briefly joined.

Although the weather was pretty grim up there, the impressive Ribblehead Viaduct could still be seen in the distance as we neared Yorkshire 3 Peaks territory. Wind and rain persisted as we made our way into Dentdale before easing towards the end of the day. We actually reached Dent with the sun out to end this 22 mile walk.
