6th October -- Malham, Yorkshire Dales
A good day in the Dales with better than forecast weather. The two B walks did the same circular route in different directions, taking in Malham Cove , a circuit around Malham Tarn, Goredale Scar and Janet's Foss. The A walk (no photos this time), did a similar circuit to the non-clockwise Bs, with an extension north of Malham Tarn.

The 'C' group's walk took them over to Janet's Foss , from there they followed the river to Hanlith and then Airton, stopping for lunch. Then crossing the river to Warber Hill and over to Kirkby Malham for a 'Swift Half', before returning to Malham and yet more refreshments.
Everyone except the clockwise Bs arrived at Janet's Foss at the same time
