This classic long distance route passes through stunning scenery on its 100 mile journey from Skipton to Penrith.
Starting from the magnificent Skipton Castle, the walk passes through the very popular Yorkshire Dales on its way into Cumbria and the hidden delights of the Upper Eden Valley.
The route was inspired by Lady Anne Clifford, that great lady who owned vast estates in the old county of Westmorland during the 17th.c. Lady Anne travelled repeatedly between her castles and the route takes in the ruins of these once magnificent buildings.
Although originally devised and written as a six day walk, there is now a nine day alternative to enable you to take things at a more leisurely pace. This also allows more time to visit places of interest on route.
