Overview

From the pretty village of Austwick the walk takes us through Oxenburgh Wood to the hamlet of Wharfe. We then continue to one of the largest limestone pavements in the UK – Moughton Scar before returning to Austwick via the Norber Erratics a collection of carboniferous limestone and sandstone boulders that were moved by the ice age glaciers created by weather erosion.
