Reasons for trip

Grassington is one of the ‘Honey Pots’ of the Yorkshire Dales and is always busy with visitors. Some come to enjoy the small village with its market square, tourist shops and pubs. Others walk. This is probably one of the nicest, shortest and easiest walks.

From the corner of the car park, a paved track between stone walls drops down to the River Wharfe. This is limestone country and the river has cut down through the exposed limestone leaving weird shaped rocks. The two small weirs once fed a large, now demolished textile mill. Above the top weir is a small hydro-electric plant. This was shut in the 1940s but has recently been restored to generate electricity again.

There are easy walks along the banks of the river from here. Alternatively, cross the footbridge and climb up to the road, turn left and follow the road to the end for the delightful C12th church.
