After a riverside walk to the village of Grassington, enjoy a walk over moorland and along a hillside before rejoining the River Wharfe at Kettlewell. Follow the river to the little village of Hubberholme.
As you leave Burnsall the river roars dramatically beneath limestone crags. Begin to climb and admire the amazing views over Wharfedale. Walk into Grassington, a fabulous Dale’s village with oodles of charm. Discover more stunning views over the pretty farm land, laid out like a patchwork quilt around you as you head up to Coniston Pike. After some gentle woodland walking, follow a riverside until you come to your destination for this evening, Hubberholme, a pretty little village
There is a fair degree of ascent and descent in today's walk, all of which is well worth it as you will experience the beauty of wide open moorland and views of Wharfe Dale.
Be sure to visit Saint Michael and All Angels Church when you reach Hubberholme. Keep an eye out for the mouse carvings in the pews.
The remains of the novelist and playwight, J B Priestly are interred here. The Geoge, just over the bridge, at the end of today's walk, is said to have been his favourite pub.
The path over the Moor may be difficult to follow in very bad weather. Take care on the roads around Grassington and over the road bridge in Kettlewell.
Stout footwear, preferably boats, would be most suitable and pack a rain jacket as this can be a wet part of the country.
