“A quick line to let you know that both Paul and I very much appreciate the friendly and efficient service that we received from Brigantes before, during and after our walk on the Howgills and Limestone Trail. This was the first time that we used your services but it was the tenth walk we have undertaken ranging from Derbyshire through Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cumbia. We have used different carriers but your service exceeded all others. From my first contact with you, when I received superb personal service, through the care you demonstrated regarding the storage of our cars (Paul was fulsome in the praise for your mother in this respect), the friendliness of both Stewart and your driver at Kirkby Stephen (sorry forgotten his name), the efficiency of the baggage transport throughout, and our final collection from Settle to be reunited with our cars, everything was faultless. The walk itself we thought superb with enjoyable contrasts between the soft roundness of the Howgills, the craggy heights of the Pennines and the tumbling waters and gentler pastures of intervening lowlands.Many many thanks, we hope to stay fit enough to do more walks, with Brigantes of course, in future years.” Trevor Wain 2014

    Just a note of appreciation for ensuring the safe arrival of our baggage on the Howgills and Limestone Trail. Also, please pass on our thanks to your driver, Stuart and your other drivers.

    Route issues we found

    1) Kirkby Stephen – the Poetry Path at NY776080 is closed because of flood damage.

    2) Sedbergh – the footbridge over the River Rawthey opposite the old mill at Birks (SD651913) has been destroyed, however, there is a marked diversion in place.

    3) Barbon – the footbridge over Barbon Beck at SD656828 is damaged but crossable with care.

    Summary

    A very enjoyable walk, apart from Ease Gill to Ingleton (too much mud and too many stiles and farmyards). Altogether, a much better walk than “The Dales Highway”.
