A snowy Walk above Settle

March 22, 2018

A steep climb from Settle brings you in to some lovely limestone countryside with great views over the Ribble Valley and beyond.

The Walk

This is a fine little walk at all times of the year but to be honest I have included it after taking the girls on a fun, very cold and snowy walk when their school was closed. The photos turned out very well as they tend to when white snow (what other kind) , blue sky (plenty of other kinds) and limestone dry stone walls combine.

For those planning on taking this walk take less note of the mileage but the the amount of climbing that is required. It is a very steep climb from Settle but the views are well worth it. The area of Attermire is full of interest and for anyone wishing to get a good feel of the area in the minimum amount of time it is perfect.

Navigation Tips

When walking in snow there are a couple of key, but obvious, things to remember. You will not be able to see the paths on the ground and everything takes a lot longer and is more tiring. The final thing about navigating a snowy walk is to enjoy it.
