Day 11: Dent to Settle
23 miles - 3,333ft of ascent

AW set off early on the last day of his Pennine Journey pausing in Dent only long enough to take some photographs – one of them being the 'quaint memorial to Adam Sedgwick'.

Before him was the sprawling mass of Whernside and his route was to take him along the minor road that climbs up Deepdale and then down Kingsdale, below Whernside, to Ingleton. He entered Ingleton by the other half of the popular Ingleton Falls path than that taken by the 2008 journey and spent 'the best part of an hour' setting up a self-portrait at Thornton Force. This picture was featured on the dust cover of the first edition of A Pennine Journey.

He says very little about the remainder of the walk to Settle which would have yielded views of the gentler eastern slopes of Ingleborough. Naturally he ends with many reminiscences of the walk before describing his arrival, 'unkempt and dirty', back into Settle 'as a giant'.

He had successfully undertaken a walk of around 211 miles in 11 days in, at times, appalling weather. His adventure deserves a wider audience which, hopefully, will result from the 2008 version of his Pennine Journey.
