421 Ilkley

The Dales Way is a delightful 80 mile footpath that starts from Ilkley and ends at Windermere. We walked it one summer, but don't worry, today's outing is only the first bit! After following the River Wharfe to Addingham and its ancient church, you climb through Nesfield, complete with stocks, to High Austby for a birds-eye views of Lower Wharfedale. Then descending through woods the return is beside the Wharfe to the Riverside Hotel where you can undo all that healthy exercise with a large helping of fish and chips.
