Sedbergh Blast

We left home at around 11:00am and filled up at our local garage and then headed over to Clitheroe by our usual roads. From Clitheroe we followed our usual route to Settle via the minor backs roads of Sawley and Wigglesworth. We passed by Settle and joined the B6479 and passed through Horton in Ribblesdale, we decided to stop at the tearoom just outside Horton in Ribblesdale again for lunch. It is really cheap and often very quiet, compared to Settle and Hawes.

We left the tearoom and headed for Ribblehead Viaduct, where we turned right on the stunning B6255 to Hawes. We didn’t go into Hawes and turned immediately left and decided to head over to Devil’s Bridge. We joined the A684 and Bikes at Horton in Ribblesdaleheaded for Sedbergh, we followed the A684 passed the Moorcock Inn and eventually arrived in Sedbergh. We passed through Sedbergh and continued on the A683 down to Devil’s Bridge.

After a brief stop at Devil’s Bridge for a brew we left and headed for home. We took the A65 heading towards Skipton and soon arrived in Ingleton. Just after Ingleton we turned right onto minor roads and headed through Gisburn Forest and past Stocks Reservoir. We then joined the B6478 and headed for Slaidburn. We continued on this road and headed over Waddington Fell and down into Clitheroe. We passed through Clitheroe and then went over Pendle Hill and through Sabden. We then followed the A56/M66 back home as usual.
