Walk: Pateley Bridge, Nidderdale Way, Nought Moor, High Crag, River Nidd, Brimham Moor, Brimham Rocks, Nidderdale Way, The Panoramic Walk, Pateley Bridge
Start Point: Pateley bridge Grid Reference: SE 157 655
Distance: 11 miles Ascent: 1,500 feet
Time: 6 hours    
Weather: A fine day with some sunny spells.
Comments: Nine walkers and working dog Stanley attended for this walk. Leaving Pateley Bridge we joined the Nidderdale Way and climbed steeply to Nought Moor. Following a short coffee break at Yorkes Folly we continued across High Crag Ridge to High Crag, the highest point of the day. Leaving the ridge we descended to the River Nidd which we crossed and followed for a short time. Leaving the river we followed Fell Beck through the woods before joining the track to Brimham Rocks. After a long look around at the fascinating rock formations we followed a series of tracks and field paths to rejoin the Nidderdale Way. We followed this for a time before it became the Panoramic Walk which took us back to Pateley Bridge and the bus.
