The Erratic Boulders of Norber

Clapham YDNP car park, Church Avenue
Clapham, LA2 8EQ
Limestone erratic boulder near Pen-y-Ghent, one of Yorkshire's Three Peaks

This walk has been cancelled

A  4½ mile (7km)  walk from Clapham to wander among the famous Norber Erratics – huge boulders carried here by an Ice Age glacier. Where did they come from? We will also visit Nappa Scar where we will see evidence of an ancient sea. Hear about the Craven Faults and their dramatic effect on the landscape. And we will glimpse into beautiful but little known Crummackdale with its fossil waterfall.

There is one steep climb on to Norber Brow and one moderately exposed section at Nappa Scar. There are stiles on the route.

Walk starts from Clapham National Park Car Park, LA2 8EQ.

Please wear outdoor clothing appropriate for the weather, sturdy footwear and bring a packed lunch and a drink.

Dogs not allowed.

Places limited, booking advisable.
