Swaledale Festival – Guided walk: Lead mining near Gunnerside

June 3 @ 10:30 am - 3:00 pm

Probably the best lead mining walk in the area with plenty of old ruins and excellent views. Led by mine specialist Neil Dyson, the 5 mile route involves some steep terrain. Parking in Gunnerside is limited so please car-share if you can. Dogs on leads are welcome.

Adults £10; Under 25s £3

Places are very limited so please book in advance. If a walk is sold out, you can call our office to add your name to the waiting list. Please let us know as early as possible if you are not going to use your walk ticket; we can’t offer refunds but someone else may be able to take your place.

You’ll need sturdy boots, waterproofs and a hat. For the longer walks bring lunch and water. Coins for ticket machines may be needed. Published durations are approximate. Thanks to the Yorkshire Dales Rivers Trust, Yoredale Natural History Society, Keld Resource Centre, the Woodland Trust, our walks co-ordinator Charles Collinson, all our walk leaders, and to our generous walks sponsors.
