Wainwright passed through Stainforth and would have stopped at a cafe had it not been for hundreds of parked bicycles - the cafe is now long gone presumably, any details would be good.
After Stainforth the route procceds to Helwith Bridge and follows the west side of the Ribble to the crossing point at the north end of Horton. Wainwright referred to there being 3 inns in Horton but he could only find 2 - was there a third?
Wainwright made no reference to the now famous Pen-y-Ghent cafe in Horton - was there a cafe there when he passed and was the vicarage still occupied by the minister (in 1998 it was a hostel for women and still called "The Old Vicarage").At Horton the new and old routes meet again and the way then coincides with the Pennine Way via a green lane toward Hull Pot and over the boggy moorland of Foxup Moor. Any facts about Hull Pot would be useful as it forms a pleasant place to stop awhile after the climb from Horton.
The way becomes awkard over the moor but becomes less boggy as progress is made down to Foxup and on to Halton Gill and then there is the steep climb up to Horsehead Pass. Wainwright suggested that the hill gets its name from the curate that used to serve both Halton Gill and Hubberholme and would pass over the moor between the parishes - any detail would be interesting.
So, the first day has visited Settle, Stainforth, Horton, Foxup, Hubberholme and Buckden - any details on these places and the local people from circa 1938 would be useful as part of the social history of the journey.
