Dale Abbey

I wasn't expecting to pass by here but the need to change the route resulted in me walking right by it.

Dale Abbey

A somewhat awkward route meant I was soon viewing the abbey from some distance and all because a few yards of path have been closed.

Dale Hills

A broad track took me through the area known as Dale Hills.
