W25: Hidden Villages and Sunday Lunch
Leave Co-op car park 9.00am. Start White Swan Gilling West 9.15am. 7 miles. Easy/Moderate. £7.
A repeat of last years very popular Sunday Lunch Walk. We leave Gilling by the church yard on to Waters Lane, past fishing lakes, then over the sunken Jagger lane, and learn of its origin and history. Then on to Washton and Kirkby Hill where we have splendid views looking down on the village of Ravensworth and its castle ruins. This is the next village we pass through on our way to meet Holme Beck and so back to Gilling West, passing through the pretty village of Hartforth to reach the White Swan for our traditional end-of-festival Sunday lunch.

Leave Co-op car park at 9.15am. Start Buckden pay and display car park at 10.15 am. 8 miles. Moderate. £7.
Join us for this classic Upper Wharfedale walk. Leaving Buckden we follow the Dales Way along riverside paths to the attractive hamlet of Hubberholme and its ancient church. We continue following the River Wharfe up Langstrothdale to Yokenthwaite where, following a short uphill section, we reach the edge of the moor and enjoy fabulous panoramic views down the length of Wharfedale as we traverse generally good and flat paths to reach Cray. Another final short climb is followed by a long and steady decent, through attractive woodland, back to Buckden.
