This is a relaxed day taking a journey from the past and present. This route follows a very well preserved ancient Roman Road where Caesars conquering legions once marched as they crossed the Pennines. Centuries before traders had trodden the tenuous route into existence as they moved westwards from Wensleydale to the heart of the Three Peaks. Also passing the Water Cut by Mary Bourne. One of ten benchmark sculptures this one carved from Cumbrian Salterwath limestone, alongside the track known as Lady Anne’s Way, in the Eden Valley we follow part of the Settle to Carlisle railway.
With a mix of terrain including moorland, hard base limestone and rutted tracks we explore the Yorkshire Dales National Park and surrounding area. This tour is in keeping with our relaxed and scenic tours on clear days with rolling views over the Yorkshire Dales National Park. This tour usually starts in the market town of Kirby Stephen and concludes at either Reeth or Richmond.
