The walk today is 5+ miles and over many stiles which are easy to navigate. I hope the weather will be kind to us as the views are really terrific across the valley.

After coffee at either Cobblestones or Coffeeecho (both on the right as you walk up the main street) we will meet in the main square outside Cobblestones. The initial part of the walk takes us up through the village to turn off onto High Lane, taking a left onto a gentle uphill path through a field and onto Edge Lane from where the views should be fantastic. The trail turns right down to Hole Bottom and right again down a road parallel to Hebden Beck and into Hebden. There is a cafe here with a toilet but they would like you to buy something, say a drink or a snack if you wish to use the toilet. On the recce, we sat outside and enjoyed a cuppa. The descent now becomes more marked as we continue down to the River Wharfe, during we will pass a salmon breeding farm. At the river, turn right for a couple of miles of flat riverside walking back into Grassington ending conveniently at the coach and toilets.
