The Yorkshire Dales is an upland area of the Pennines in the historic county of Yorkshire, England, most of it in the Yorkshire Dales National Park created in 1954.
The Dales comprise river valleys and the hills rising from the Vale of York westwards to the hilltops of the Pennine watershed. In Ribblesdale, Dentdale and Garsdale, the area extends westwards across the watershed, but most of the valleys drain eastwards to the Vale of York, into the Ouse and the Humber. The extensive limestone cave systems are a major area for caving in the UK and numerous walking trails run through the hills and dales.
This is a reminder of the next walk and to provide you with the information sheet. Instructions for booking your place, (if you haven’t already done so), are on the sheet which is attached.
Darkness will descend around 4.00 pm and, besides encouraging walkers to arrive at the finish in good time, this provides us with the opportunity to run a quiz. The end of walk party will be held in the Crown Inn, Askrigg. Sandwiches and chips will be laid on circa 4.30 pm (at a nominal charge per head) and the quiz will follow at approx 5.00 pm. There’ll be prizes for 1st & 2nd placed teams (max 5 per team, please!) and course, the coach will depart promptly at 6.30 pm as usual.
