A guided walk a part of a small group to explore the scenic area to the north east of the town of Settle.
Heading northwards from Settle, we follow part of the 'Pennine Journey' path through typical Yorkshire Dales countryside, passing through the villages of Langcliffe and Stainforth. We then join part of the Pennine Bridleway route to visit the beautiful Catrigg Force waterfall. Next it's over moorland, passing areas of limestone pavement into a valley where we take a look at a couple of interesting caves. One of the highlights of the walk comes towards the end when we ascend the hill called Warrendale Knotts, with stunning views over the surrounding countryside.
The walk will be about 8 miles/13km with about 500 metres of ascent.
The price is £36 per person for this walk. Please book and pay below. You are booking with Cath Lee who will guide the walk on the day.
We meet outside Settle Tourist Information Centre, post code BD24 9EJ. There are a couple of car parks in the town. The Greenfoot car park, post code BD24 9HL is probably the nearest. It's a 'pay & display' and costs £2.30 per day. The ticket machine only takes coins. Settle is accessible by rail, and the station is nearby.
Meet at 9:15am to be ready to set off at 9:30am. We'll aim to finish the walk by early to mid-afternoon, with the option of enjoying a cup of tea in a cafe when we get back to Settle.
If you would like to stay locally the night before or after this walk, the town of Settle is ideal, or any of the surrounding villages.
