This is one of the loveliest walks that I have done in this area, which is noted for its walks. It combines a riverside stroll, a visit to the hamlet of Wharfe, where there are no surfaced roads, a long stretch of walled green lane and a limestone pavement. There is no long steep climbing and the going is mostly firm, with good views of Pen-y-Ghent.

This is a superb walk with extensive views and varied interest. The views of the eastern flank of Ingleborough and its ridge were a particular surprise towards the end of the walk. The route was easy to follow on good paths. The following updates may help. WM5-6 There is now a path in the right hand field for most of this tarmacked drive. WM7 the footpath sign has been reinstated. At WM9 the stone wall mentioned in WM8 no longer blocks the path - allowing access to the lower viewpoint mentioned by Mark. WM12 the track turns 90 degress right then 90 degrees left before reaching WM13 where there is now a sign marking the direction of the bridleway. WM14 I didn't spot "Garth Cottage" but the bridleway is clear enough. WM19 The footpath sign implies the path is on the west side of the wall - it isn't you must cross the stile and follow the east side of the wall. WM20 the sign to Horton has fallen off the post but you can see where it would have been pointing. Hope this helps others.

Super walk especially the views alongside the river and over the quarry. Points to note: At WP7 the entrance to the quarry is no longer green - just a pair of wooden barred gates; as you approach WP8 there has been a new viewpoint created overlooking the quarry just above and opposite the stile to the left. Well worth a look!
