Walking in Wensleydale, Leyburn to Harmby and back

Walking in Wensleydale, Leyburn to Harmby and back

It never ceases to amaze how many footpaths there are that I still haven’t walked in the glorious Yorkshire Dales and even just in Wensleydale, our last walking group walk was definitely no exception! We set off from Leyburn and took a circuitous route via Harmby and finished up at the newly refurbished Posthorn in the market place.

Once again there is to be great excitement in Masham, make a date for Saturday 29 April 2017 and join in the fun as the Tour de Yorkshire makes its way through the town on its way to Ripon and finally on to Harrogate. Whilst you’re there, take a little time to visit the family run breweries, the Black Sheep Brewery and Theakstons, have a meal in The White Bear located just by the Black Sheep. Wander round the interesting market place with its independent shops, hostelries and cafés, the glass makers and galleries.

Walking from Askrigg in a circular manner!

Walking from Askrigg in a circular manner!

What a beautiful, clear autumn day to walk from Askrigg, mid Wensleydale with our walking group, in the glorious Yorkshire Dales, a comfortable walk of about four and a half miles and mostly easy terraine. Park in Askrigg near the church, or even better, in the car park as you leave the village towards Carperby. Set off from the cross and take the lane behind the church, West End, to Whitfield Gill.

Carperby to Aysgarth Falls in the glorious Yorkshire Dales

Carperby to Aysgarth Falls in the glorious Yorkshire Dales

The weather may have been a bit inclement last Tuesday but our walking group still had a most enjoyable walk from Carperby through the fields to Aysgarth Falls in the glorious Yorkshire Dales. Its years since I’ve been to Freeholder’s Wood which surrounds the falls. Take time to explore, take the kids, there’s so much to find and enjoy in and amongst the trees as you go along. I feel we maybe even got a little lost in there, but not for long, the wood isn’t so big!
