From the village of Kettlewell you start off along The Dales Way, one of Britain's gentler National Trails, to Starbotton, where you leave the riverside trail to head up over Old Cote Moor to Arncliffe (the original setting for 'Emmerdale'), with fine valley views down both Wharfedale and Littondale. This is followed by a second riverside stroll along the Skirfare to the little hamlet of Hawkswick. Oystercatchers often forage along the riverbank and sand martins nest in the bankside walls. At Hawkswick you head back over the moor to Kettlewell, passing the Knipe Scar Limekiln as you approach the village; it is one of the better preserved local small-scale commercial limekilns built to produce lime fertiliser during the 18th and 19th Centuries. A choice of post-walk refreshments in the form of cream teas or alcoholic tipples await you in Kettlewell.
