Leaden days in the Dales

Parting mists and leaden skies did their best to dampen enthusiasm, but the moors above Hebden are full of interest...
...weaving amongst the old lead mines that litter the valley.
Spoil heaps and twisting gullies add spice to the moorland tracks that wind their way amongst the ruins.
Above bog cottons, the curlew called while the skies darkened as the rain set in.
And so ends June.
