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.
