Yorkshire Water Way is finally nearing completion.
The finished walk will chart a 7-day route from Kettlewell in the Yorkshire Dales to Langsett in the Peak District. The walk takes in the summit of Great Whernside, the reservoirs of Upper Nidderdale and the Washburn Valley. The walk then follows a meandering course down through the South Pennines taking in Ilkley Moor and Saltaire World Heritage Site, Haworth, Heptonstall and Hebden Bridge, Stoodley Pike Monument, Cragg Vale, Great Manshead, the M62, Marsden, Wessenden Valley, Holme, Woodhead Tunnels and, finally, Langsett.
This is a walk of contrasts, from the wild moors of the Dales, Pennines and Peak to intimate cobbled lanes of former mill towns and villages.
Publication looks set for Easter...
