We loved our weekend in Yorkshire Dales; it is a stunning piece of the world offering little villages, panoramic views, and gorgeous countryside. I am not a hiker, but I enjoyed our hike from Malham Cove to Gordale Scar and Janet's Foss Waterfall. We got sunburn, the weather was generous with us, and we couldn't wish for more. Maybe for fewer stairs, but more about that later!
Living in Derby has got its pros. It is located in the middle of the UK, which means we are pretty close to everything. Manchester, London, beaches (Skeggy or Mablethorpe), all within 2 hours by car or train. We are also close to some fantastic National Parks, like Peak District and Yorkshire Dales National Park. We have been to the Peak District a few times, and because, you know, the grass is always greener on the other side, I thought spending an Easter holiday weekend in the scenic Yorkshire Dales will be something new for us.
I saw a picture of Ribblehead Viaduct just before we were going to Yorkshire Dales and as soon as I realised that it is only about 50-minute drive from the Bondcroft farm, I wanted to visit it for sunset. Because the picture I saw was during the sunset and it looked epic.We arrived at the Station Inn around six o'clock to fill our empty tummies with some excellent pub food before heading towards the viaduct. This pub is located right next to the viaduct and bear in mind it also can get hectic. People like to park their camper vans nearby as the pub is the only place which has fresh water, food, and toilets; for miles.
After our fill of food and drink, we headed towards the viaduct. Luckily, there weren't many people around at this time of the day, and we were able to finally use our drone, which is usually sitting on top of the shelf collecting dust.The construction of Ribblehead Viaduct started in 1869 and required over 2300 men, and the first passenger service was open in 1876. The viaduct is 400 meters long and 32 meters high above the alley.
If you are a Harry Potter fan, then you must know this location! Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows were filmed here when Ron vanished, and Hermione stayed with Harry on their own. Below picture.The view from Malham Cove is outstanding and breath-taking the whole walk from Malham to Malham Cove is breath-taking; you can see the Cove right from the car park. The walk there is easy, either along the path or through green fields.
The Malham Cove offers picturesque scenes; cold stream flowing through the fields where baby cows were peacefully chilling under trees, hiding from the sunlight. There was another hot day ahead with a cloudless blue sky. And then...the fun started! I honestly didn't know, that getting on top of the Malham Cove was required, I thought we could go around it and hike towards out next stop - Gordale Scar. But no, I was wrong and what was even worse - there were 400 irregular stairs to get on top of Malham Cove. I have asthma, and I'm no hiker; I bought hiking shoes literally the day before we were coming to Yorkshire Dales. That's it; I thought I would die as soon as I climbed the first ten steps.
After all, it wasn't as bad as I imagined, the stairs were quite easy despite being oddly shaped. With small breaks waiting for Carl, who was continually taking pictures, I managed to get on top of the Malham Cove, where the welcoming cold breeze cooled my glowing-sweaty face, and it felt like heaven (Maybe because I was closer to the sky, too?)Proper shoes are required, no matter the weather, but I can imagine the stairs can get pretty slippery and dangerous after some rain. Also, the whole top of the Malham Cove is covered by limestones, so please, be careful!
