A guided walk as part of a small group of usually no more than six people plus your guide, to explore the pretty countryside and fells around Barbon and Casterton in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
Starting from the village of Barbon, we take countryside paths, tracks and lanes until we arrive in the village of Casterton, with a possible stop at The Pheasant Inn for morning coffee. We then gradually ascend the hillside to the high point of Brownthwaite Pike (421m above sea level) from where there are sweeping views across the landscape. Walking over the fells, then onto a little lane we’ll eventually pick up a bridleway that leads down into Barbondale, one of the lesser-known of the Yorkshire Dales, but very beautiful. After crossing the river on a footbridge, our return is on a woodland path back into Barbon.
The distance is about 11.5 miles/18.5km with approx 500 metres of ascent.
Proper hiking boots and outdoor clothing are essential.
Sorry no dogs. Young people under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
