The walk goes along the banks of the Ure and climbs to visit impressive waterfalls in feeder becks. The principal climb is on a lane (a dead-end) which makes things easier, while the views from the top are none the worse for the easy ascent! Askrigg with its market cross, 15th Century church and three-storeyed buildings, is a charming village which you will certainly enjoy looking around.

Walked 4/2/12 in the snow - the views were stunning. Couldn't see a red metal gate at 8 but the picture at 9 shows the way clearly, diagonally up the hill. Take the time to see the tiny but beautiful memorial chapel near 13. Just before the bench you will see a sign on the wall on the right inviting you to visit. Whilst it's true there is no way through to Whitfield Gill from the bridge at 18, if you carry on down the path a little way, there is another path, on your right, back to it. When you arrive at 21, don't be distracted by the stile and bridge on your left, also signposted to Askrigg - your way is through the gap in the wall on your right. This is a lovely, varied walk, highly recommended.

Completed Tuesday 23rd October 2007. Decent route, spoiled by free roaming livestock at WM9(nervous companion) and what can only be described as a Dead Rabbit Highway between WM13 & WM14.
