Dent station

Another picturesque station on the Settle to Carlisle line.

A slightly less comfortable bed with an outside private bathroom. Lovely view over the hills though and mad crazy constant bird song. Nearly got trapped in the shower though as the sliding door was so very stiff. Had visions of me being trapped there forever, naked, the bathroom door locked.

Popped out to the Spar where I bought a cheese and onion roll and some millionaire's shortbread for lunch. A beautiful morning, becoming quite warm now. On to the deli, were I got a bit of a cheese selection: smoked wensleydale, Kit Calvert wensleydale and a Swaledale goat.

Back for breakfast, 2 sausages again plus hash browns, tomatoes, eggs and mushrooms. Some hilarity followed when I managed to pick up the key of one of the cyclists staying in the B&B and wondered why I couldn't get into my room.

Said goodbye to the landlady and walked to the bus stop. Nearly missed it as it went past as I was on the wrong side of the road. Met a nice lady on the bus called Clare from Norwich, an older woman who'd been walking and staying at the Hawes YHA.

We chatted on the bus, while waiting for the train at Garsdale and on the train to Settle where she was staying an extra night. Very scenic again over the Ribblehead viaduct. I changed at Leeds for the train to Sheffield.

An afternoon in a deserted office. The cheese and onion roll I'd got had gone horribly soggy unfortunately. Left at 4.50 to walk to the station, very warm in the sunshine. A smooth journey down, had no one sitting next to me which is always good, and I listened to Spotify, read the Independent from the weekend and played games.

Final leg - the tube home for smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. Dave opened his presents from Anna - a Lush Shakespeare mug and tea towel, very nice.
