Middleham 7 miler
« on: 10:48:27, 05/06/17 »
Saturday and due to change of plans I went for a walk from my AA "50 walks in the Yorkshire Dales" book. Parking at Middleham was dicey but found a cul de sac
Middleham castle

went through a field other  side, after blundering about among amused sheep, I found the correct corner of a big field, to exit.
Soon got down to the river cover

what a great spot.

banana sarnie n tea was in order, twas just sublime here

further on away from river a little, some very nosy sheep

tame rabbit


crossed the cover at hullo bridge, heres the river from it

here me book guide went wrong, saying turn right on a permissive path. Turned right away from signed PROW, wound up against a wall where a stile was blocked off, my book is copyright a few years ago, clearly things have changed! Backtrack abit, follow path out onto Braithwaite Lane, turn right and go West

twas then down lane for a bit, which got very narrow n was dicey when summat came other way! Crossed river, then directed in a tiny gate, up a sloping graveyard, to a VERY well hidden church

and out the yard on other side onto a road, church was a bit more visible that side but still in the middle o nowhere! Go left along wide road a bit, book directs me to leave road for path to Tipgill on the left, in fact was Tupgill on the right side! Somebody doesnt know right from left.......... ;D
Up the path, this is looking back down it

yellow flowers are crosswort, pinky thing is (tufted?) vetch




went cross fields n up a little valley with some ornamental features...................didnt take a pic there as was having to dodge teenagers playing football in the middle o nowhere!
Anybody ID the yellow flowered plant? Berberis?

Up on the gallops area now, heading East back towards Middleham. Bedstraw flower


was now a dull walk for a mile or so to join road n arc back via a fields past castle ruins into Middleham, still nice really!
A really nice walk, driving back went past a Brymor ice cream place near Jervaulx abbey, still open. Went in had double scoop whopper of ginger ice cream, didnt quite work as a flavour really.

They had 20-30 flavours, didnt even see what they all were! Must do that walk at Jervaulx sometime............. ;D
I would recommend this walk!

Nice TR & pics pleb. We did that walk last year. It's a good walk apart from the monotonous bit that crosses the race course.
You had better weather on Saturday than we had today.  We drove through Middleham today in torrential rain. We ended up mooching around the shops in Harrogate.  :(
