Circular Walk of over ten miles from Cover Bridge in Wensleydale

I think it’s becoming quite a regular walk from Cover Bridge for me, twice in two weeks! But this time I was leading and so thought it would make a change to go in a clockwise direction rather than the usual anticlockwise direction. It always puts a different perspective to go the ‘other way round’, you could even say it was a different walk.

Lovely walk from Fairhurst’s at Berry’s in Swinithwaite in a circular manner

Our walking group decided to walk from Fairhurst’s at Berry’s in Swinithwaite.  The walk was about four miles in total and easy going but the weather was not good, not good at all when we were getting ready. I really didn’t want to set off but was persuaded, as I would be, and so pleased I was as the afternoon cleared out and we had a stunning walk

A walk from West Burton of bridges, valleys, a couple of villages and stunning views

On a very windy January morning I set off from home in West Burton, didn’t really know where I felt like walking but in the end had a walk with stunning views, easy valleys, a couple of villages and survived the wind! About five miles depending on detours.

From the Wensleydale Creamery in Hawes in a circular manner

It’s coming up to Christmas and our ladies walking group thought it would be a nice idea to gather together for the last walk of the year and to finish with lunch afterwards.

Circular walk from Ilton near Masham walking Leighton and Roundhill Reservoirs

A walk of about ten miles walking through pastureland, over moors and past two reservoirs with stunning views for most of the way. Please do plan your route before you set off, where appropriate clothing and good boots (it can get wet in places) and of course, drinks and snacks if not a packed lunch.

Circular walk from Redmire in Wensleydale in the glorious Yorkshire Dales

A lovely circular walk from Redmire village green with wonderful views across to Penhill and Wensleydale, into Walden and Bishopdale, also Bolton Castle on returning to Redmire. About four and half miles the perfect walk for a morning or afternoon.

West Burton, Thoralby, Bishopdale, Aysgarth and home in a circular manner

If you're looking for a longer walk, then set off from West Burton, about nine and a half miles, or a shorter one, set off from Thoralby. Please do make sure you plan your route on the map before hand and wear appropriate footwear and clothing. Always take a drink and a snack, if not lunch, with you.

Cover Bridge, East Witton, Low Ellingstring, Jervaulx Abbey in a circular manner!

This was a walk made of a few walks already done but put together in a different way and was just lovely. About eleven miles but after the first pull up hill all easy going. As always please do check the route on your map before you set off and wear appropriate clothing and footwear not forgetting to take plenty to drink and snacks if not taking a picnic.

Walking from West Burton in Wensleydale in a circular manner, a short walk of about 4 miles

I suppose I have done this walk so many times I’ve never thought to relay it here but doing the route the other day felt it was just too good for anyone to miss. Easy going apart from a couple short ascents, lovely views so take your camera, along with your map of course if you’re not sure of the route.
