Orange/green named discs/signposts with green hill graphicDales Way

126 km / 78 miles

Cumbria, N Yorks, W Yorks
The Way mainly follows attractive dales through the Yorkshire Dales National Park and Howgill Fells and the south-eastern part of the Lake District. From Ilkley it heads along Wharfedale passing Bolton Abbey, the Strid, Grassington and Buckden before crossing Cam Fell and the Pennine Way National Trail to descend to Dentdale. From here, the River Dee is followed to Sedbergh, then the Lune to the Crook of Lune. The Way crosses farmland to reach Burneside and the River Kent, which is traced for several miles before the path branches off to the finish.

There are three Dales Way Link routes from cities nearby: from Leeds (Leeds - Dales Way, 19 miles, on OS maps) and Bradford/Shipley (Shipley - Dales Way, 8 miles, on OS maps) each described in the Gemmell-Speakman publication, also now with a Bradford - Shipley link, 3 miles, with an online description, and from Harrogate (Harrogate - Dales Way, 20 miles) for which a publication is listed. The Saltaire Village World Heritage Site is at Shipley, a complete and well-preserved industrial village of the second half of the 19th century.
