This is a relatively easy 7 mile walk taking in three charming Wharfedale villages: Burnsall, Linton and Grassington. Starting from Burnsall, one of the most beautiful villages in the Yorkshire Dales, we will head over fields and tracks to Thorpe and then on to Linton. Linton is famous for its falls, which tumble dramatically over a wier and rocky drops. From Linton we will make our way in to Grassington and its Dickesnian Christmas Festival. At this annual event the village is transformed into a bygone Victorian era, and we can get into the festive spirit with brass bands, carols, roasted chest nuts and mulled wine. After spending some time at Grassington we will walk back along the River Wharfe via the suspension bridge into Burnsall.
