Whitsun Dale, Ravenseat, Coast to Coast
Whitsun Dale, approaching Ravenseat
Nearing Whitsun Dale valley the scenery became breathtaking, many of the fields adjoining the moor being festooned with wild yellow flowers, and the slowly moving waters of Nay Gill following alongside our path provided the added attraction of tinkling sounds. Our path led through the car park at Ravenseat, the farm at the dale head, and the home of Amanda Owen, the author of the Yorkshire Shepherdess.
I had thought in 2016 that omitting Whitsun Dale from our walk was no big deal and that there would be nothing much to see there anyway. I was very much mistaken, however, and was certainly grateful we had not missed it out again. Walking the length of Whitsun Dale to reach the Swale was a wonderful experience and the scenery along the dale was marvellous. The path followed the Whitsundale Beck all the way to the Swale and there were some amazing views, particularly near to Ravenseat. There were several waterfalls near to How Edge Scars and the view from Oven Mouth was magnificent
