Many times I have now walked the stretch from Kinder Downfall to Kinder ow and every time I've looked down the large opening at the top of Red Brook and thought to myself' 'Is this a possible way up?'

A short early morning walk visiting the Hole of Horcum. Initially not quite the dramatic void I had imagined and it wasn't until I was down in it that I really appreciated it's charm. My route initially took me onto moorland around the west side of the hole. The wide track made this section quick walking which is good as it was pretty featureless. That's moors for you though but I must say I like that about them.

Things got a lot more interesting though when entering the hole.
