Dotted around Swaledale (and around the countryside in general) are memorial benches,
dedicated to those who have enjoyed and loved particular nooks and views.
I wonder who Fred was, how often he visited this particular spot;
whether he was still coming here in his 70's and 80's?
Did I pass him and say hello?
I'll say hello now,
and here's to you....Fred Iley,
I love this Dale too.
