Circular walk from Wensley, through the park to Preston under Scar, Redmire and back along side the River Ure
On a beautiful autumn afternoon my friend Denny and I set off from Wensley Bridge at Wensley near Leyburn in the Yorkshire Dales. The footpaths we were going to follow we’ve walked many times before but never really as the route we had planned.
Lovely walk from Redmire to Carperby and Castle Bolton in glorious Wensledale
If you’re a regular walker in the Yorkshire Dales, in Wensleydale in particular, you’ve probably walked parts of this route, but I hope I’ve found some new footpaths, new to me anyway, that perhaps have been less trodden or the way is different to previously walked, I do hope so.
Peaceful village of Preston under Scar near Leyburn in Wensleydale in the Yorkshire Dales
Have you ever been to Preston under Scar? It’s not a village you would go through as the main routes bypass the village to the north and to the south. If you haven’t been its time to take a detour and have a little look!
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.
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.
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.
