The Industrial past of Ribblesdale and the Leaping Salmon

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.
