A guided day walk as part of a small group to explore the pretty countryside and fells around Barbon and Casterton in the part of Cumbria that falls within the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
If Covid-19 social distancing is still in place then we'll take a maximum of five people, or if restrictions are relaxed by then we'll allow up to six people plus your guide.
Starting from the village of Barbon, we take countryside paths, tracks and lanes until we arrive in the village of Casterton. We then gradually ascend the hillside to the high point of Brownthwaite Pike (421m above sea level) from where there are sweeping views across the landscape. Walking over the fells, then onto a little lane we'll eventually pick up a bridleway that leads down into Barbondale, one of the lesser-known of the Yorkshire Dales, but very beautiful. After crossing the river on a footbridge, our return is on a woodland path back into Barbon.
The distance is about 11.5 miles/18.5km with approx 500 metres of ascent.
The price is £38 per person. Please book and pay below. You are booking with Cath Lee who will guide the walk on the day.
We meet at about 9:15am to be ready to set off at 9:30am on the roadside in the village of Barbon between The Barbon Inn and the church. Post code LA6 2LJ. There is free car parking on the roadside wherever you can find a space.
