Circular walk from Leyburn to Cover Bridge on to Middleham and back all in beautiful Wensleydale
Having walked these following footpaths many times but never in the order or at the same time it turned out to be a really super walk. No steep climbs, river side footpaths, time to explore if you wish and about eight miles or more
Circular walk from Buckden on to Yockenthwaite to Cray and back to Buckden in Wharfedale
On an absolutely perfect autumn day we set off from Buckden to walk to Yockenthwaite over to Cray and back down to Buckden. About seven miles, couple of short steep climbs but otherwise quite easy going with terrific views for most of the way.
Pinker’s Pond, Hullo Bridge over the River Cover and Middleham all in Coverdale in the glorious Yorkshire Dales!
Last Saturday brought beautiful weather and we decided how nice it would be to meet at Pinker’s Pond, have a picnic by the tarn and then enjoy a walk into Coverdale. Our walk was just four miles long and no tricky hills.
When all this is over!
Joanne and I were talking the other day of the things we were missing doing whilst we’re in lockdown and everything closed but also of things that we hadn’t done for a while here in the glorious Yorkshire Dales.
I’m not all sure how many people have heard about What3words but thought I could shed a little light and hope you might think about putting the ‘app’ on your smart phones. For me walking the hills what3words is just another backup
Poem written in 1869 by Kathleen O’Mara
To start the month of May thought perhaps we could ponder a little more on our situation but also remember what has happened before. Came across this poem written in 1869, which was reprinted during the Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1919, and written by Kathleen O’Mara.
Sunday 29th March 2020 in the Yorkshire Dales
I know you’ve probably heard it said before but, yes, what strange times we’re living in although looking from the house on Lower Back Nook in West Burton you would really not think anything different was going on in the world.
My back has gone into spasm so no walking!
Just over a month ago a very silly thing happened, I was bending down to pick up the vacuum cleaner and ping my back goes into spasm, didn’t even reach the thing in question! Anyone who has experienced this, and I think I’m one of many, will understand the excruciating pain and total immobility, for a while at least!

Circular walk from Carlton in Coverdale in the glorious Yorkshire Dales
Now firstly before you start to read about the route please be aware that there are lots of stiles on this walk, not very often there aren’t any at all but this has a lot, we all commented on it! Other than that a really great walk with wonderful views up Coverdale to Little Whernside and Greater Whernside.
