The Industrial past of Ribblesdale and the Leaping Salmon

Venue:
Stainforth YDNPA Car Park, Stainforth Settle North Yorkshire BD24 9QD United Kingdom
The River RIbble at Stainforth Foss.

Walk starts from Stainforth YDNP Car Park,  BD24 9PF

A 4 mile (6.4km) walk along the River Ribble to explore the legacy of the industries which depended on the river in the past. We will visit the Craven Limeworks and Langcliffe, a quiet village with a surprisingly violent past. The walk includes a visit to Stainforth Force where, with luck, we will see salmon leaping up the waterfall.

A moderate relatively flat walk along riverside paths. There are some stiles on the way. Conditions underfoot are mostly good. YDNPA level 3 walk.

Please wear appropriate outdoor clothing and sturdy footwear with good grips and bring a drink.

No dogs (assistance dogs welcome)

Places limited. Booking advisable from Malham National Park Centre.
