Fremington Edge














WALK OF THE WEEK - 23/04/09

8 miles / 4 hours. Reeth, Swing Bridge, Grinton, Marrick Priory, Marrick, Fremington Egde and the White House.

Fremington Edge rises sheer above the confluence of Arkengarthdale and Swaledale, a vast wall of screes and crags that affords a superb view of Reeth far below. The walk across the top of the broad ridge is one of the finest in the Dales, and if you combine it with a riverside walk from the Swing Bridge, through Grinton to the historic remains of Marrick Priory, then you will be rewarded with a memorable walk.

I,Flux,can very highly recommend this walk; which we undertook as part of our navigational course with Mark Reid and Elvis!

A great walk! The views over Reeth and Arkangarthdale are very special. Try going on to Booze and Langthwaite and pop in to the pub. Time seems to have passed it by!
