This months walk is a 9 mile circular led by Allan.
Leaving ripley village via the castle heading to Hollybank Wood and then Clint where we see the remains of Clint stocks and Clint Hall. Turning north towards Burnt Yates, crossing the Pateley Bridge road and arriving at Shaw Mills. We then head up Cut Throat Lane, circling back to Shaw Mills but picking up the Nidderdale Way just north of the village. Here we make our way to Hill Top Farm, Whipley Hall, High Rails, and past the castle grounds to return to Ripley village.
After the walk it's back to Allan's for home made cake 😉
