Hmmmm. Think we may need a further clue here! All I have so far is that Aldebaran is the brightest star in Taurus. Taurus is the bull. So "Bull Pot" - but that fails the letter count. Or, perhaps, Aldebaran is a red giant. So "Giants Hole", but - again, wrong letter count. :-)

We get there in the end........................

Anyway, try this which is an alternative route into a Dales classic.....
