W3: The High Fells Challenge Day 1 - Yokenthwaite Moor (new)

Leave Lidl car park at 9.00am. Start at Marsett Bridge (GR SD903862) 10.00am. 10 miles. Hard. £7 (£6 if all 6 stages booked)

Yockenthwaite Moor has a reputation as a huge bog, but we know the route to avoid most of it. This walk starts in the beautiful setting of Marsett on Semerwater, climbing sharply to Stalling Busk, where we join the Pennine Journey long distance path as far as the Grey Horse. Here we set off skirting the bog, to the 2,110ft summit of Yockenthwaite Moor, with views into Wharfedale. We then trek across the fell side and down Billinside Moor, following the lovely Raydale back to Semerwater and Marsett. 


W4: Grassholme Reservoir Teesdale (new)

Leave Lidl car park at 9.00am. Start Middleton-in-Teesdale Tourist Information Centre at 10.00am. 8 miles. Moderate. £7.

Join us to enjoy one of a series of walks in Upper Teesdale, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, sponsored by the Upper Teesdale Tourism Network. This is a beautiful walk with fantastic views, initially climbing past Kirkcarrion on the Pennine Way, then dropping down through meadows to Grassholme Reservoir, an excellent picnic spot. After walking on the bank side path we join a road briefly before dropping down through fields to the Tees Railway Walk for a gentle walk back to Middleton-in-Teesdale. 

W5: Jervaulx & The Three Bridges

Leave Lidl car park at 9.30am. Start at Cover Bridge pub car park (GR SE144871) at 10.00am. 7 miles. Easy./Moderate. £7.

The walk starts at Cover Bridge, near Middleham, and follows the banks of the River Ure to Jervaulx Park and its ancient abbey, before crossing the river to the pretty village of Thornton Steward. From there we pass by the oldest church in Wensleydale before re-crossing the River Ure as we make our way back to Cover Bridge.
