Coverbridge to Coverbridge in Wensleydale in a circular manner

Our little walking group set off on a beautiful March morning, the birds were determined to sing above our chatter and it wasn’t long before the early morning clouds disappeared and we were stripping off the layers, it was nearly hot even! A walk of many contrasts, about ten miles, with sensational views towards the North York Moors and into Wensleydale, a few villages to explore, moorland, lush pastureland and the river Ure almost constantly in sight.

Circular walk into Walden from West Burton in Wensleydale

A lovely walk from the Cauldron Falls in West Burton into Walden and back down via the old/now newly planted plantation. Park your car at the waterfall area or by the village green and please wear suitable clothing and good footwear as the route takes you through pasture and moorland. Always a good idea to plan your route and take the map. The walk is about seven miles, quite easy going but some inclines. Fantastic views all the way. If you’re staying at Hill Top Cottage in Walden please pick the route up at the *.

East Witton to Colsterdale on to Ellingstring and back to East Witton

This walk is curtesy of Diana Jolland who has compiled a little book of ten circular walks in Wensleydale. You can find the book for sale in the Leyburn Arts and Community Centre in The Old School House. A route to walk after a good dry spell or be prepared for a bit of mud and standing water. A walk of magnificent views into Wensleydale, Colsterdale and Nidderdale.

Redmire to Castle Bolton, Dent’s House, Preston under Scar and back

I know I keep on saying this but I am still amazed as to how many footpaths I haven’t walked, it’s really quite mind boggling as to how many miles of paths and tracks there are in the glorious Yorkshire dales and Nidderdale and how they intertwine with one another.

From Hawes into Cotterdale and the Pennine Way, two viaducts and a waterfall!

On what turned out to be the perfect January day we set off from Hawes in a north westerly direction. A beautiful circular walk, just over ten miles with a good climb from Thwaite bridge.

This would seem like a lovely thing to try, wild walking! Lindsey Chapman, the BBC wildlife presenter and Patron of The Wild Watch in Nidderdale AONB, has launched three new Wild Walks.

Redmire, Preston under Scar, Lord’s Bridge in Wensleydale

No long hills, easy going, wonderful views, about 6 miles in a circular manner, what more could you want with a walk? We parked in Redmire, there is a designated parking area at the top of the green. From here you’ll see a footpath sign pointing in a northerly direction to the left of the parking area.

Lofthouse to Scar House Reservoir in Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

What a truly wonderful walk. Was it the weather? Was it the terrain? Was it the fantastic views? All these things made this walk quite special. It’s been years since I’ve walked in upper Nidderdale, I’d nearly forgotten how beautiful it can be.

Circular walk by Addlebrough, taking in Bainbridge and Askrigg and back to Thornton Rust in Wensleydale

Another fantastic walk, about ten miles in all, pretty easy going for most of the way and some fabulous views across to Semer Water and the splendour of Wensleydale in the glorious Yorkshire Dales. Again, take your map for reference as my directions may be quite sparse but will give you a very good idea of the route we took.

For this walk of just over ten miles you really will need your map! OS Landranger 99. We set off on a wonderful autumnal day from Masham, easily parking our cars in the market place.
