About the event

Using Ilkley Community Transport to the start the walk at Brimham Rocks, the final stage of the Yorkshire Heritage Way passes through some of the best countryside in the Nidderdale National Landscape. It slowly descends to Ripon, leaving Brimham Moor to cross the River Skell at Butterton Bridge. From Sawley the route then follows the River Skell to Fountains Abbey. After walking through Studley Royal Deer Park, the walk continues along the Valley of the Seven Bridges to Ripon. The aim is to return by minibus to Burley by 5.30pm. Bring a picnic lunch and enough to drink. Wear suitable footwear and clothing. There are a number of stiles. No dogs please.

Cost: £6 for minibus transport to Brimham and return to Burley from Ripon. Pay cash on the minibus.

Booking: Required - limit on numbers (28)
