Walking in the Wensleydale from Bainbridge on to Worton and Askrigg and back
On another lovely morning in Wensleydale in the Yorkshire Dales, promising to be hot later, we set off from Bainbridge for about an eight mile walk. A couple of climbs…
A Day of Waterfalls in wonderful Wensleydale in the Yorkshire Dales
I wondered if it might be a nice idea to have a day visiting the waterfalls found in Wensleydale, you may already have bet me to it and done them, please excuse if so. There will be too many in total to visit in just one day, lots of little ones dotted on the map, tried to ‘Google’ how many but no information, so perhaps some of the main ones for starters.
Walking from Grinton along the Swale Trail
Having never heard of the Swale Trail I was intrigued! This a 12 mile long trail for cyclists of all abilities setting off from Reeth and finishing in Keld, fairly easy going for most of the way with more inclines as you near Keld. Wonderful views as you would expect sometimes in sight of the River Swale.
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.
The Fabulous Swaledale Festival coming up 25 May to 8 June 2019
Again an amazing programme to enjoy for fifteen exciting days in May and early June not only in Swaledale but Wensleydale too, Richmond Georgian Theatre, local churches and other local venues and villages.
The Little White Bus in Wensleydale in the glorious Yorkshire Dales
My friend Wanda and I thought we’d have an adventure and catch the Little White Bus to Askrigg and then on to Hawes. Wanda, from sunny Scarborough, has stayed in our holiday cottages before and felt like a trip up the dale.
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.
Walking on Wether Fell above Hawes in Wensleydale in the glorious Yorkshire Dales
The hills above Hawes in upper Wensleydale are places I’ve not really explored in all the time I’ve lived here, can’t really understand why but not for much longer I feel after a wonderful walk around Wether Fell.
Circular Walk from West Witton to Penhill Beacon and Trig Point in Wensleydale
My friend Denny and I have been walking the Yorkshire Dales together more than usual just lately (Den is the one in the picture) we’re in training to attempt the National Three Peaks, Ben Nevis, Scarfell Pike, and Mount Snowdon beginning of June
Humble Pie in Askrigg in Wensleydale in the glorious Yorkshire Dales
Humble Pie, where does the name come from? When I’m next in Askrigg I’ll call in and ask Elizabeth and Betty. Mother and daughter team have returned to their little shop, Elizabeth opening it first of all in 1999
