Bewerley Industrial Heritage Trail

14 km / 9 miles

The Bewerley Industrial Heritage Trail is nine miles long with some steep ascents. The route follows Public Rights of Way with a small section of permissive paths. For hundreds of years man has exploited the rich mineral deposits of the landscape - lead, lime and stone. Explore almost a thousand years of lead mining history on this walk through stunning scenery. The route passes by a hand-cut level, the remains of old smelt mills and a unique 19th Century lime kiln around Pateley Bridge in the heart of Yorkshire's Nidderdale.
