Very clear instructions and a lovely quiet walk following 3 Limestone Dales in a Nature Reserve. After the heavy rain it was very muddy in Gratton Dale which made the going tricky but definitely a walk to repeat in drier conditions. Added interest was the entrance to an old mine that opened into a large cavern.
