Tornado at Ribblehead Viaduct

Not a physical tornado but Tornado – A1 class locomotive. I went with my photo buddy Pete Stockton for a day west of Hawes when we saw that Tornado was running. The day started with us looking at some lone trees on limestone pavement stuff at Southerscales and then having a bit of a trek up the hill to get a better vantage point of Tornado. We were standing around for a while and it was fairly cold so a good job we were layered up. It was also a good job that I’d had a decent breakfast, having stayed at the lovely Old Dairy Farm just outside Hawes. It’s run by Paul and Pam and an absolute treasure. Wonderful food and company and my room was very comfy too.

So Tornado came and went and then we decided to have a look at an old ruined cottage that we’d seen earlier. A well earned pint in Aysgarth and we called it a day.
