Explore the moors and mines of Swaledale on this circular route from Surrender Bridge above Reeth. Swaledale is one of the best known areas of Yorkshire and renown for its scenery. But, did you know that it was once a site of heavy industry?
This walk will take you to look a different Swaledale to the one we think of today. The moors at this time of year are changing form winter into spring, the views extensive, but, they can bite! Please be properly equipped for a day at high elevations in the Pennines; waterproof jacket and trousers, good footwear and food and drink are essential.
This is a moderate walk of approximately 16km. Meet time is 9am and finish approximately 4pm. We would recommend that children are 10yrs and upwards for this walk.
We are also dog friendly, so no need to leave the pooch behind! Please do keep them on a lead and under close control.
Not only come and learn about the moors and their industrial history but if you wish to practice your navigation, this is an ideal opportunity. The trip will be lead by David, who is a qualified Summer and Winter Mountain Leader, holds the International Mountain Leader Carnet and is a provider for the National Navigation Award Scheme.
