Exploring the Yorkshire Dales

ba4e1daf-6e88-40ec-9d15-65dbc970dc68
GUIDED walks will give visitors the chance to explore “open access” areas of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

The aim of the free walks is to help the public understand their new rights under the Countryside and Rights of Way (CRoW) Act 2000, which came into force in the area in 2005.

It increased the area of open access in the park from four per cent to 62 per cent.

Ranger services manager Alan Hulme said: “The walks are a chance for people to exercise their new rights by exploring new areas of the National Park and, at the same time, learning more about its special qualities.

“They will be shown around by the relevant area ranger who has an intimate knowledge of the particular section and can explain the work of the ranger service.”

Walks planned include:

September 2: Longstone Fell to Aye Gill Pike Moor, meeting in the Longstone Fell car parking area. A684 Garsdale Road, 10am to 4pm. Telephone: 01969 666210.

September 9: Around Fountains Fell, meeting in the Quarry car park, 10am to 4pm. Telephone: 01969 652380.

September 15: Buckden Pike, meeting in the Buckden National Park car park, 11am to 4pm. Telephone: 01756 751690.
