Picture 1 of 6

Surprisingly deep valleys make walking in the area more of an effort than you would have thought. However the effort on the legs provides a feast for the eyes with some wonderfully attractive valleys providing a walk of character and interest. The dell near St Mary’s Church provided the highlight for me, exploring the villages provides the highlights for others, the site of a steam train is always a pleasure whilst a short or longer stop at the Fox and Rabbu=it is a must for all! Walking around here is thoroughly enjoyable but be prepared, the valleys are deep and the climbs out of them are tough!

Recommend: The woods between Levisham & Lockton can be a little dense in high summer – careful with the shorts!
