|Comments:||Dales limestone landscape with evidence of past quarrying, disused shafts and sink holes. Farming industry along the Wharfe Valley, giving reason for the empty buildings at higher and less accessible locations.
A relaxed day's walking, mainly on good tracks and with time to explore along the way for the nine Ramblers.
