Ingleby Moor and Greenhow Bank Walk

Ingleby Moor and Greenhow Bank Walk

We’ve done this walk a fair few times now I think it’s based on a walk from a pathfinder guide we’ve had for years. It’s  a brilliant walk no matter what the weather, It’s especially fun in the snow. There are also plenty of options for making the walk longer such as turning left at the bottom of Greenhow bank and goring through the fields past low farm, or walking up to Bloworth Crossing and doubling back on your self before going down Grenehow bank The first path is  a bit of a strange one as it goes up someone’s drive then between a fence, it’s usually quite over grown and muddy so it’s easy to miss the sign at the bottom of their drive. Length: 10 miles Start/Finish: Car Park near the Church or school in...

Hole of Horcum and The Bridestones Walk

Hole of Horcum and The Bridestones Walk

This is another one of our “Banker” walks…just like the walk around Roseberry Topping, we use it when we have a few hours to do a few miles but don’t want anything difficult but still want to see a few things along the way. Despite coming 11th in the Rudest place names in Britain it’s relatively quiet apart from summer bank holidays. It’s close to Dalby Forest and there’s also a campsite just along from the car park. Length: 11.3 Miles Time: 3-4.5 hours depending on walking speed/breaks. Start/Finish: Car park at the top of the Hole of Horcum (around £2 for all day parking) Grid reference SE 852 936 Refreshments: Horseshoe Inn Levisham, Cafe/Tea room in Lockton are both on route but there is also the Fox and Rabbit just...

Gunnerside 10 Mile Circular Walk (with pubs)

Gunnerside 10 Mile Circular Walk (with pubs)

This walk was supposed to be done from Gunnerside, to Reeth taking in the lower path that we decided not to take on our Coast to Coast walk, however we decided we didn’t want to wait for the bus to from Reeth to Gunnerside so drove straight to Gunnerside and thought we would do a circular walk. We nipped into the Kings Head for a pint (the delicious Askrigg Ale) and what turned out to be the biggest sarnie (swaledale cheese and chutney) and most tasty chips we’ve had in a long time…all for a fiver too. PLEASE NOTE THE KINGS HEAD IS NOW CLOSED (12/06/13) so it’s worth detouring to the farmers arms at Muker for refreshment The walk starts directly opposite the pub, by taking the public footpath on the right hand side of the bridge, follow the...
