Footbridge over Deepdale Beck
Footbridge over Deepdale Beck
This footbridge is both a critical landmark and a useful aid to crossing the beck, even in such deep snow that many streams are covered. Deepdale Beck was still flowing despite the long freeze. Whilst there was a footbridge here on my last visit NY9414 : Footbridge in Sled Dale it seems to have been seriously upgraded, and the big shooting hut is completely new (summer 2009). My route on this, my 53rd birthday celebratory ski tour, was along a track back to West Stoney Keld that was also not here last time (and not on my paper map), but today had a set of tractor tracks along it which not only made it very easy to follow, but acted as an effective loipe, so I was able to speed along for the next 2 km or so.
