12 mile walk, up on to the moorland to start and a few hills along the way.

Near Skipton there are some beautiful rolling hills and open moorland overlooking the Aire Valley and Wharfedale. With stunning views, breathtaking scenery and friendly locals, this is a walk in a somewhat lesser known area just south of the Yorkshire Dales, not to be missed.

We start our walk on the very edges of North and West Yorkshire, the meeting point is in a village physically located in North Yorkshire but oddly given West Yorkshire postal town and area codes! It is from here we will take a slightly hilly, but scenic 12 mile walk over fields and moorland, with beautiful views along the tops of the moors.

Come along and experience the stark beauty of God's own country. Starting by heading up and over Bradley Moor overlooking the Aire Valley heading towards Addingham, before turning back towards Skipton, looking out this time over Wharfedale at the opposite side of the moor. We may get to hear, if not see, one of the trains chugging along the Embsay and Bolton Abbey steam railway in the valley while we are heading back along the Dales High Way.

We will be finishing the walk with an optional visit to the local village pub, with food and drink available, a friendly welcome and warming open fireplace, before heading home for a relaxing evening.

Feel free to bring along your furry friends, although remember it is a fairly long walk for little legs and there are a few stiles along the route. Please remember to keep them on a lead through fields with animals roaming free and to pick up after them. Thanks.
