    Map,look at,for Knott End and for Rivington

    Clues...

    Knott End is near Fleetwood but 'over the water' from it.

    Rivington is south of Chorley and north of Horwich,east of Adlington and west of Belmont.

    'Rivi Barn' is normally the name given to 'Large Hall' or 'Large Barn'.

    Any day is good but Sunday is best.

    Inglesport Cafe, Ingleton

    Hey Folks,

    coming from an outdoor-ie background, I can fully recommend the upstairs cafe above Inglesport in the middle of Ingleton.

    Tracey runs a superb cafe, with "tiffin" and "cavers' breakfasts" a speciality.

    For those of you with dogs, there are even "Wobble Sausages"

    Cracking spot - enjoy.http://www.ukgser.com/forums/images/smilies/aidan.gif

    The cafe in Hawes (Wensleydale valley) is a good coffee stop. Mainly frequented by the RR boys but it's a great atmosphere and fantastic roads/views to get there. If you are approaching from the south, a good route in is via Settle (Naked Man cafe = good butties and coffee), and Ingleton (see recommendations above). Just watch out for the unmarked police bikes.

    Cheers, K.

    The Bowsuns Locker at Roa Island near Barrow. Fabulous home cooked food- the meat and potato pie was too big for the plate and my chips were in a separate bowl. Fabulous. And very cheap. Well worth a visit.
