Walks with Children in Wharfedale

Walks with Children in Wharfedale

by: Terry Marsh
It is not by chance that the splendid Dales Way follows the River Wharfe in the early stages of its journey to Windermere, for beside the Wharfe you will find some of the most extravagant scenery the Dales have to offer.
This book of walks is designed to introduce young people to the delights of the countryside and the joy of walking where the air is clean and Nature's beauty theirs to behold. The twenty walks are not unduly arduous, and will suit just as well those who are not so young, but who still like to get out among the meadows bright with wild flowers, fellsides that are a purple haze with heather, and in woodlands full of nesting birds and alive with birdsong. The high slopes resound to the calls of curlew, red grouse, skylarks, meadow pipits, golden and green plovers, haunting, evocative reminders of the beauty of our landscape heritage.
The walk locations are: Bolton Abbey; The Strid Woodlands; Beamsley Beacon; The Valley of Desolation and Simon's Seat; Barden Moor Reservoirs; Trollers Gill; Barben Beck; Loup Scar and Thorpe; Linton and Threshfield; Grass Wood; Kelber and Lea Green; Conistone Pie; Capplestone Gate; Great Whernside; Top Mere Road and Starbottom; Dowber Gill; Buckden Pike; Cray and Scar House; Hubberholme and Yockenthwaite; Linear walk along the Wharfe between Buckden and Beckermonds.
