Settle, the Ribble and Cleatop Park

You need to log in as a member of Walkingworld to access the details for this walk and have an active subscription. Please join, or log in above if you are already a member.

The walk visits some interesting places in the town before reaching the Ribble, which is followed for some distance. Farm tracks lead to a climb through fields to Cleatop Park, a wood that is a Local Nature Reserve. An uphill path that is not on the OS maps goes through the wood, which is most attractive and flower-filled. The descent is partly by farm tracks, partly by good field-paths and finally by a lane at the top of the town. There are good views throughout, the best being on the long descent. There are two ladder-stiles mentioned; all the others are stone steps.

Delightful walk through varied scenery and lovely views. The riverside sections are generally okay for dogs off the lead, although there is a field (with horses when we went) that is unfenced. Other sections of the walk (points 12-15 and then 16-20) are also good for dogs off the lead, but may be livestock in neighbouring fields at some times of the year. Other sections will mostly need dogs to be kept on a lead as there is livestock around, roads to cross etc depending on how obedient your dog is! Also, several dog-friendly pubs in Settle.
