Two years ago I wrote a blog describing my favourite 10 short walks in the Lakes, Dales and North York Moors. Ten is not really sufficient so here are another selection of my favourite short, but very satisfying walks.
You can find the original 10 on this link
A pretty tumbling beck falls through woodland towards the village of Askrigg, ripe for exploring.

Borrowdale is one of the easiest and most attractive valleys in England crowned by the small hill of Castle Crag.
A working fishing harbour, an attractive abbey and some fine coastal walking at Whitby on the North Yorkshire Coast.
Lakeland in minature on the outskirts of Windermere; a small fell with outstanding views along the country;s longest lake.
5. Nicky Nook (Lancaster) new
A popular walk on the fringes of the Forest of Bowland but easily accessible for most walkers.
6. Hay Meadows at Muker (Dales)
The attractive village of Muker is the base for a walk in the hay meadows (best in June) of Upper Swaledale.
Hidden away in the eastern Dales, Dallowgill has pretty woodland, open moors and many undiscovered delights.
One of the best preserved abbey ruins is at Rievaulx surrounded by woodland, moor and river. The monks chose well.
Semer Water is full of character and interest for anyone interested in nature and how it can be preserved in today’s frenetic world.
An old country house, a lovely unspoilt village and a riverside stroll are all included in this short walk from Pooley Bridge.
Enjoy your walking
