Addlebrough is the distinctive small hill on the left-hand side of Wensleydale. We use the National Trust Permissive Path to get to the summit at 1,451 feet. The path takes us on to Carpley Green Farm where we pick up Busk Lane and cross the attractive heathland where curlew and oystercatchers can usually be seen. High Lane then takes us down through the limestone landscape to the hamlet of Stalling Busk in Raydale, with its views over Semerwater, to The Cam High Road. We follow the route of Wainwrights’s ‘Pennine Journey’ north to Bainbridge with a fine view of the remains of the Roman Fort. From here we contour back along the escarpment via Cubeck back to our starting point.
This is a circular walk
Richmond Walking & Book Festival (http://www.booksandboots.org) provides a unique mix of daytime walks and evening talks to both inspire and invigorate you:
Be invigorated: explore the beautiful Yorkshire Dales in autumn - enjoy daily walks for amblers, ramblers and serious walkers led by friendly guides, keen to share their knowledge and enthusiasm for the Dales.
Be inspired: meet celebrated authors, discover new ones and engage in a full programme of evening book events, and the occasional afternoon talk.
We have a great selection of graded walks to choose from each day, you can embark on an ambitious climb one day and enjoy an historical stroll the next.
Richmond is on the edge of the northern Yorkshire Dales. It is very compact with shops, restaurants, accommodation, a Norman castle, the River Swale within walking distance and, of course, the Dales, very close by.
Easily accessible by road or rail, Richmond is just off the A1 at Scotch Corner and a bus ride from Darlington Railway Station on the East Coast mainline.
Our walks should provide something for everyone, but since your enjoyment and safety are paramount, please note that walk routes may be subject to change by the Leader on the day taking account of weather conditions or conditions underfoot. Only in the most adverse conditions will the walk be cancelled.
Please note - In the interests of other walkers, wildlife and livestock, dogs are not allowed on any festival walks.
All our walks are led by unpaid volunteers who provide their time for the pleasure of passing on their love and knowledge of our wonderful countryside.
