Today starts a little chilly and we drive through some back roads towards Bolton Abbey and then along the A59 to Blubberhouses.  We then turn north along Greenhow Hill Road which is one of the nicer roads to drive and there is very little traffic so can bumble along.  At Greenhow Hill we turn right towards Pateley Bridge and descend with some wonderful views as the road drops down to a lower level.

At Pateley Bridge we turn north again as we are going to the Sportsmans Arms where we have a great lunch.

The inn will soon become busy as we are close to shooting moors which will open on 12 August.  The lobster is special today so I enjoy eating that!

It is really warm this afternoon – some beautiful sunshine and we roll along quite gently with the top down and enjoy the warmth – summer!

We return by a slightly different route through Dacre and then past RAF Menwith Hill – one of the famous golf ball sites.  Then back onto the A59 and back to Addingham.  Very nice scenery to drift through.
