Day walk from Skipton to Sharp and Rough Haw.

Straightforward walk with good scenery. On a clear day good views over the Dales. Walking back along the forestry road to Skipton. Option of a pint after walk. 

From Skipton we will be walking through this historic market town towards the village of Skirton along a country lane. After Skirton we will be walking across an open moor towards Sharp Haw trig point where if the weather is decent we can sit have lunch and admire the views including Broughton Hall and possibly Esthon Hall. Then descending from the trig point we will walk through a Rhododendron tunnel to the forestry road and back a few miles towards Stirton. The walk continues from Stirton past Keelham Farm shop to Skipton Park and the canal towards the train station. To then enjoy a pint if required from a local venue
