Day 1 Ilkley to Grassington

Our first stage took us from Ilkley to Grassington following the River Wharfe through villages such as Addingham and Burnsall, with visits to Bolton Abbey and The Strid. The terrain was largely on well-made riverside paths with no significant ascent, with the exception of our detour to The Craven Arms at Appletreewick.

A lovely walk alongside the beautiful River Wharfe with plenty to keep us entertained all along the way.
