Overview

From the car park in Leyburn we make our way to Bellerby Road, turn north and pass through a housing estate and fields to a back lane. Here we turn south and pass the old quarry (now lake) to cross the A684 to observe the Harmby waterfalls.  Continue through Harmby/fields to Low lane where we find our Dingly Dell for lunch.  We then follow the R. Ure to Wensley and return via the Glebe Field nature reserve. 

NOTE: If, for any reason you wish to shorten your walk after lunch, you could leave the party, walk 0.5mile north making a total of 4 miles.

With the odd exception the route through fields was quite dry.

Quite a few stiles and a total ascent of 550 ft.
