|Walk:||Dales Ways to Hebden, climb Scale Haw to Edge Top, re-cross Hebden Beck to Yarnbury, High Barn then return over fields to Grassington|
|Start Point:||Grassington car park||Grid Reference:||SE 002 637|
|Distance:||8.25 miles||Ascent:||1,200 feet|
|Weather:||Mild, some sunshine, light breeze, mainly dry underfoot.|
|Comments:||20 set off (and 20 got back). A gently, easy walk, taking in Linton Falls and a level walk along the banks of the Wharfe. Disturbed a stoat killing a rabbit by the foot path so hurried on. Relaxed elevenses at Hebden, then a short, steep climb up Scale Haw and Edge Top. A stroll to the next eating stop, preceded by a halt to recall where Roger built a snowman last time I did this walk. A breezy lunch, minor exertion crossing Hebden Beck twice then a steady walk to Yarnbury and High Barn where we stopped, again, for tea. A couple of impossible styles, then a gentle scamper over fields to Grassington.|
